Product Description


'It is pleasing to see this book, written by experienced primary practitioners, offering imaginative, practical ideas all of which are underpinned by sound learning theory. All primary teachers can benefit from the excellent examples of effective primary practice described' -
Prue Goodwin, Lecturer in Literacy and Children's Books

'Covering topics ranging from: exploiting opportunities to write from experience, to poetry slamming in the classroom, to 'harnessing the potential of new technologies' (Green 2011, pp. 70) the chapters provide the detail required for immediate classroom transfer, including references to relevant children's books, websites and free teacher resources. However, read as a collection, the practice discussed provides more than a collection of creative ideas: many common messages and themes are revisited across the case studies meaning that readers potentially derive insight into the nature and principles of effective literacy instruction.' (Frances Bodger 2013-11-26)

This book manages to turn an encyclopedia into a series of short sketches, many of them absurdly funny with some actual facts just for fun.
As books go this makes a change to the oft produced fans annual that is just photos of the players and a few excerpts from the tv series.
This is what it says in a way and surprisingly enjoyable to read or just dip into
