    Abstract

    Writing a book is always challenging. Balancing the demands of writing with the pressures of a full time teaching post is no easy task . We wanted to provide a text full of practical ideas to support teaching and learning whilst also fostering critical thinking and reflection. The book is published in the midst of the current political focus on spelling, punctuation and grammar, as well as the emphasis on systematic synthetic phonics. This week Year 6 pupils in primary schools have, for the first time, completed SPAG tests and no doubt teachers will be waiting with baited breath to see how they have performed. Hopefully months of careful preparation from teachers and pupils alike will result in them performing well. Although many in the teaching profession do not agree with the “back to basics” approach, there are also many who do, and irrespective of our positions we all want our pupils to succeed in whatever is required of them.
