Synopsis

Exploring Primary Design and Technology by Rob Johnsey

This helpful book clarifies ideas about one of the most important - and often undervalued - subjects in the primary school curriculum. It provides a crystal clear guide to what can be achieved in the classroom and uses case studies and detailed line drawings to illustrate many of the issues. The author includes a lively and up-to-date discussion of the nature of design and technology, based upon a great deak of his own research. The book breaks new ground by discussing in detail the procedural skills used in designing and making. It also suggests how these might be taught in a progressive way in the classroom. A major part of the book is devoted to the subject knowledge required to teach design and technology, together with an examination of the role of the subject co-ordinator and class teacher. Exploring Primary Design and Technology will provide an essential insight resource for practising and trainee teachers at primary level. Rob Johnsey is a Lecturer at Warwick University's Institute of Education.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
