Recommendations for books on Primary School Teaching
4

APurpleSquirrel · 26/06/2019 15:37

I'm seriously considering retraining as a Primary School teacher in the next few years.
I know the best way to understand the role is to visit schools and shadow; but I'm not in a position to do this yet, I will be able early next year.
In the meantime are there any good books about being a Primary School Teacher, about the role, workload, how you plan etc that I could read beforehand, so that when I can go into a school for some experience it won't all be completely new and unexpected?
Thanks in advance.

You’d be best off reading through current teachers posts than published books.

There have ben endless posts on here about what the job entails-have a good read through them. Join some teaching Facebook groups etc as well.
