Most people know that children's school experiences need to be different to meet the needs of the current age. Jackie Beere shows how this can be done. 'The Primary Learners' Toolkit' is full of carefully thought out suggestions for the teacher and children as they seek to develop the learning habits that will bring success. The crafted activities that develop explicit techniques for learning in children are built upon a set of principles that help the teacher recognise the need to move their practice forward. The structure practises the book's method of providing hooks for understanding to develop. The five habits are outlined and then expanded in ways that reflect recent thinking in SEAL and teachers who have been working on this agenda will be able to exploit this book. For the teacher who wants young people who believe in themselves, organise themselves, think they can achieve, and endlessly push their own learning, this is a 'must read'...and 'must use' book. -- --Mick Waters, Professor of education and president of the Curriculum Foundation
An easy to read, well set out book which inspires one to fully engage with the SEAL framework for primary schools in an imaginative and fun way. The book is split into four sections and includes projects and lesson ideas with teacher notes to accompany which assist the development of emotional intelligence. --Majella Kennedy, Senior Lecturer Humanities Education
At last a book written for teachers that is easy to read and focuses on what the best education should look like in the 21st Century. With or without the Rose Curriculum, I believe the development of personal, social and emotional learning skills is essential to develop successful learners for life. Jackie's book will help make the development of these skills manageable for teachers and the MAGIC acronym will be easily accessible and memorable for both children and grown ups. --Gwynne Kynaston, Head Teacher, Burley Primary School
