This photocopiable book is full of innovative, user friendly, exciting and unusual activities that promote creative thinking and problem solving skills for 5-7 year olds. The activities in this book are ideal for less intensive teaching times across the school year - at the beginning of term when a teacher wants to get to know the class or just when a teacher wants to do something different to make pupils think 'outside the box'. The challenges in this book make an exciting change from the strictly subject-based lessons and would be ideal for supply teachers or LSAs. All the activities have been tried and tested in the classroom many times by the author who is an experienced teacher.
Molly Potter decided she wanted the job her teacher had when she was ten because it looked fun. A little over a decade later she saw her decision become reality and set to creating a classroom filled with excitement and laughter (alongside buckets of learning of course). She pushed, pulled, squashed, coiled and hammered learning objectives so that they would no longer fit inside the box and found that this not only made her pupils smile, it made them remember what they were meant to remember.
Molly eventually left the classroom to become a teacher trainer in all things PSHE. She enjoys training big kids too.
