Navigating your way through teaching is no easy feat – whether it’s behaviour management, effective leadership or engaging with parents, a teaching role is wide and varied and must be carried out effectively.
To help primary teachers improve their practice, we have a package of CPD books worth over £90 to give away thanks to publishers Bloomsbury, Crown House Publishing and Featherstone.
This useful and informative book package for primary teachers includes:
How to be an Outstanding Primary Middle Leader, by Zoë Paramour (Bloomsbury, £18.34)
A compendium of research, advice, anecdotes and practical tips to help middle leaders excel in this complex and demanding role, without compromising their mental or physical health.
In Zoë’s unique, straight-talking and witty style, this book is an accessible and enjoyable read for both new and experienced primary middle leaders looking to reflect on their practice and maximise their impact.
From Able to Remarkable, by Robert Massey (Crown House Publishing, £18.99)
Robert Massey provides a pathway to help teachers guide their students through the gauntlets of the gifted, the underpasses of underachievement and the roadblocks to remarkable on their learning journeys.
Reflecting on the sometimes limiting scope of what is often labelled as ‘gifted and talented provision’ in schools, Robert Massey argues that remarkabilities are there, latent and dormant, in many more students than we might at first acknowledge.
A Sense of Place – Mindful Practice Outdoors, by Annie Davy (Featherstone, £19.99)
A Sense of Place is an easily accessible guide that will make outdoor learning more interesting and fun, while also supporting children’s development of resilience and resourcefulness so that they can survive and thrive in the world as they grow.
50 Fantastic Ideas for Engaging Dads, by June O’Sullivan and Alice Sharp (Featherstone, £10.99)
Children benefit from the sensitive and supportive engagement of both their parents from the earliest of ages, but involving dads can be challenging. This book is designed to provide simple and accessible activities for practitioners looking to engage dads.
50 Fantastic Ideas for Nursery Gardens, by June O’Sullivan and Clodagh Halse (Featherstone, £10.99)
This title is packed full of exciting activities, such as making a bird feeder and a garden treasure hunt, that have been tried and tested in the LEYF (London Early Years Foundation) nursery gardens with the children and nursery staff. These are designed to enrich children’s skills and knowledge by broadening their horizons and opening up wider opportunities, extend language and contribute to deeper conversations about the great outdoors.
50 Fantastic Ideas for Children with EAL, by Natasha Wood (Featherstone, £10.99)
Every year, an increasing number of children enter the Early Years setting either new to English or with English as an additional language (EAL), which can be daunting, not just for the child but for the practitioner too. This title is an invaluable resource to help integrate children with EAL into the classroom with fresh, exciting and engaging activities that are easy to resource, require little preparation and are fun to carry out.
Primary teachers should note that they can buy any two books from the 50 Fantastic... series for only £15!
