Primary Subjects hits England’s primary schools

UKLA has got together with the National Association for the Teaching of English (NATE) and the English Association (EA) to produce the pages on English for Primary Subjects, the new termly magazine that arrived on all primary school doormats on 18th April.  As its name suggests, Primary Subjects covers the whole primary curriculum.  Its focus is on practical classroom activities, soundly based in subject understanding, and all its material comes from subject associations.  As well as contributing a lively front-page article, UKLA has played the co-ordinating role for this first issue. Its theme is ‘every child matters’.  The aim of the magazine is to help classroom teachers liven up their teaching and introduce them to what subject associations have to offer.  The fourth page for each subject sets out information on each association and its activities. Look out for your school’s copy in the staff-room and turn to the English pages! You can download a PDF version if this issue now. Henrietta Dombey
