This book is a guide for developing an enquiry approach in primary schools and offers practical ideas on how to empower teachers to embrace spontaneity and flexibility in their daily practice.

Designed as a thinking diary, this book provides space for the practitioner to record highs and lows in the classroom and experiences in meetings and training, ensuring it serves as a personal record of what works well but also a pertinent reminder of what can improve and what can be learnt from mistakes. A Practical Guide to Enquiry-Based Primary Teaching comprehensively covers all the steps involved in adopting this approach, including:

  • why enquiry-based learning should be at the forefront of primary settings;
  • how to develop teachers in this approach and assessing the prior learning which needs to take place beforehand;
  • settling into your role as a facilitator and recognising the stregnths and weaknesses within your enquiry team;
  • discussing and planning enquiry sessions, including clarifying objectives;
  • how to let go of a more structured approach to learning and becoming familiar with the tools in your spontaneity arsenal;
  • evaluating enquiry sessions.

Supported by research, this book is a fresh, innovative approach to enquiry-based learning and teaching and will be a valuable daily aid for both newly qualified and experienced primary teachers.
