Being prepared to teach every subject in the curriculum is an essential skill for all primary school teachers, and good lesson planning is a critical tool for coping with the workload, as well as for wowing your pupils, your colleagues, and Ofsted inspectors. In his new book, Stephen Lockyer provides a breakdown of lesson planning strategies, plus a range of practical and original ideas to use with your class.
Using real primary classroom anecdotes, as well as helpful diagrams, tick lists and tips on how to implement planning techniques day-to-day, Lesson Planning for Primary School Teachers is a complete toolbox for primary school teachers who want to develop their key skills and strategies for lesson planning.
