Pupils across the age range and across the curriculum spend an extraordinary amount of time writing, yet teachers often do not receive much training on how to teach writing. Pupils do not always develop confidence or fulfil their potential. This book shows teachers how to approach the teaching of writing so that they: - Can teach writing as part of the whole curriculum and as a component of pupils' linguistic development - Can teach writing as a process rather than just a product - the process includes: finding ideas, designing briefs, drafting, revising, polishing and presenting - Use assessment as part of a cycle to improve pupils' learning and the teacher's planning The book is full of practical tips including instant lessons, effective resources, and lists of dos and don'ts. Emphasis is put on providing pupils with a sense of purpose, opportunities to write for real and varied audiences, and experience of real life types of writing.

How can early years practitioners help young children to become not only numerate but aspiring mathematicians who love numbers, shapes and mathematical comparisons? The introduction of the Foundation Stage has led to practitioners seeking ways to teach maths which are more in line with the creative and playful ways young children learn other subjects. Linda Pound draws on current thinking about children's mathematical development to show how you can encourage and enhance the numeracy skills of any child in the early years by linking maths to every-day life situations and making it a playful and enjoyable cross-curricular activity. This highly practical and engaging text includes chapters on: why maths is often seen as 'hard' and what practitioners can do to help young children be more successful exploring shapes, space, measures and patterns how to make maths more fun and playful, using games, humour, stories and rhymes using music and dance to enhance mathematical understanding encouraging children to see the connection between maths and everyday experiences through, for example sorting, matching and guessing creating an environment for mathematical development, indoors and out Concluding with a chapter on how practitioners and parents can become more confident in their use of maths, this user-friendly text, packed full of ideas, is essential reading for practitioners in any early years setting. Students on Early Education courses will also find much here to inspire them.
