Everything you need to create brilliant – and happy – young learners.

Building on the success of Jackie's The Learner's Toolkit, this version aimed at younger children contains everything you need to create truly independent learners. Because there is much more to learning to learn than a set of techniques and tricks, this book helps create children who are confident and resilient in themselves and in their ability to learn and learn well. Written with more than half an eye on the SEAL framework (which may not be on the current government's list of priorities but is at the heart of all caring and successful primary schools), this book is more than a book. It is the definitive toolkit of lesson plans and teacher's notes complete with its own CD-ROM with everything the busy teacher needs to help all children become expert learners.
