This handy textbook offers a one-stop compendium on teaching the extensive range of primary foundation subjects. It takes an innovative 'three lens' approach which considers the Identity and Pedagogy of each of the foundation subjects, as well as presenting a Toolkit of teaching activities. This useful framework helps you develop your knowledge and understanding of the foundation subjects, as well as how to plan, assess and teach these diverse subjects. The book also helps you understand the value that the foundation subjects bring and enables you to reflect on why and how to teach them in a creative, imaginative and inspirational way. In particular the book offers: A clear structure that is easy to follow A concise overview of the curriculum requirements for each subject Great teaching ideas for each subject to try out in the classroom Links to academic research and practical experiences from the classroom With its rich range of creative and practical teaching activities, and underpinned by the pedagogy and identity of each discipline, this is essential reading for beginning and early career teachers. Maggie Webster is Senior Lecturer and RE Subject Leader at Edge Hill University, UK. Sarah Misra is Senior Lecturer and PGCE Programme Leader at Staffordshire University, UK. An essential companion for both new and experienced educators of the Primary Curriculum. Webster and Misra draw on the pertinent knowledge and experience of subject specialists to deliver a modern, articulate and knowledgeable overview of how to effectively deliver the Foundation Subjects. Their passion for the Foundation Subjects is evident through their in-depth analysis of the value they have to the holistic development of children. Through a comprehensive examination of subject identity, effective pedagogy and creative teaching strategies, Webster and Misra provide the tools to be a pro-active, reflective and versatile leader in the Foundation Subjects. The knowledge and experience of the authors and contributors is evident in the books ability to convey theory and pedagogy using coherent and accessible language which makes it both informative and practical. This book adopts a unique and fresh approach which seamlessly combines theory and experience to deliver information that is enlightening, inspiring and truly useful. Nick Murphy, Edge Hill University, Trainee teacher and Teaching Assistant This book fills a void in the world of ITE. The links between theory and practice can be difficult to comprehend for those making their first steps into the profession. With the three lens approach exploring the unique nature of each discipline synthesised with pedagogical aspects and creative ideas, this book provides fabulous support for trainee teachers to clearly make those links. I feel that 'Teaching the Primary Foundation Subjects' will be an invaluable text for ITE providers to share with their students to support and guide them not only through their placements but through their academic work too.

If the status and quality of science education in schools is to improve, efforts need to be made to better understand the classroom practices of effective science teachers. Teachers are key players in a re-imagining of science education. This book explores how two primary school teachers, identified as effective practitioners, approached science teaching and learning over a unit of work. In recording the teaching and learning experiences in their classrooms, the author highlights how the two teachers adopted different approaches, drawing on their particular beliefs and knowledge, to support student learning in science in ways that were appropriate to their contexts as well as reflected their different experiences, strengths and backgrounds. Through sharing their stories, this book illustrates, that due to the complex nature of teaching and learning, there is no one way of defining effectiveness. In documenting this research, it is hoped that other teachers and teacher educators will be inspired to think about primary school science education in innovative ways.
