New ideas for lunchtimes

16th September 2005 at 01:00
Many primary teachers would acknowledge the unsung heroism of their midday replacements. Successful Lunchtimes for Supervisors is a 32-page A5 booklet full of practical ideas for spreading good practice.

Children's own thoughts contribute to the picture of an adult who is friendly, calm, resourceful, able to control trouble as it arises and ready to introduce new games and pastimes. There are good suggestions for setting up "task forces" of children for special projects and for imaginative use of the playground space. Even the words "wet playtime" lose their fateful ring. Packs of three copies of the booklet cost pound;9.99 from LDA.
