Why should we foster creativity in primary English? A practical and accessible text that demonstrates how creative thinking and learning can support primary English teaching. With chapters mapped to the Teachers’ Standards and links to the new National Curriculum, each chapter provides a case study exploring high-quality primary English practice including planning, rationale and ideas for the classroom. These are fully grounded in a wide range of theoretical frameworks, viewpoints and values. Reflective activities in each chapter offering practical exercises and additional reading suggestions, encourage trainee teachers to further their understanding of how theory translates to classroom practice.
