Synopsis

Speaking About the Past Oral History for Key Stage One by Sandip Hazareesingh, Penny Kenway, Kelvin Simms

Learning about the past and the methods used to study it helps pupils to make sense of the world they live in. Through history, pupils acquire understanding and respect for different cultures and values. By emphasizing the importance of working with the child's understanding of themselves, of their origins, cultural experiences and family history, Speaking About the Past offers a powerful approach to the development of children's historical thinking. This title should be of use to all early-years teachers and children. It is especially sensitive to the needs of bilingual children because it illustrates the rich possibilities of a genuinely multicultural and multilingual approach to history in the early years. Although starting with history, all the activities are cross-curricular and encourage children to develop a full range of skills. The book includes activities, materials, curriculum and topic plans, stories, book selections and practical advice. The resources can be used flexibly and are designed to complement learning opportunities which already occur in the classroom.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

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