I am increasingly impressed by the deep and thoughtful materials produced by Community Playthings. This child centred , teacher – friendly publication has the wonderful title of ” The Irresistible Classroom.”
I can highly recommend it for the refreshing approach it takes , one that will resonate with many Early Years teachers/ practitioners.
Complimentary copies are available.

The irresistible classroom
New training resource for primary teachers
When I was a child the classroom was a place I wanted to escape from! Yet school can be something children anticipate eagerly each day. We’ve been visiting schools and talking to teachers who have created truly irresistible learning environments.The result is The irresistible classroom, a training resource to help teachers prepare classrooms that captivate children with their potential for discovery. The booklet starts by considering how children learn in Reception and Key Stage 1. It goes on to discuss how a classroom might be arranged to stimulate that learning. Lastly we reflect on how the room’s aesthetic message affects the child’s motivation.
It’s an inspiring topic, and I’m eager to share it.
