The Primary English Encyclopaedia: The Heart of the Curriculum by Margaret Mallett
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A reference book explaining key concepts, ideas and current requirements in the area of primary English. It aims to be comprehensive and user friendly. While the author has the needs of UK primary teachers and student teachers very much in mind, the intended audience stretches to anyone anywhere concerned about children's progress in English up to 11 years. The encyclopaedia includes many short definitions - parts of speech for example - and succint explanations of current UK requirements. However, the author bears in mind the bigger purposes: how we can help children become confident speakers, thoughtful listeners, sensitive readers and successful writers. Features of the book include: an introduction identifying the heart of primary English and providing a unifying framework for the book; over 800 entries; 15 extended entries on, for example, speaking and listening, reading, writing, drama, special needs and English, young learners speaking English as an additional language and assessment; up-to-date information and key issues; examples of children's work; and charts and diagrams.
