'This book is a welcome addition to support for Literacy teaching in the primary school… Creative Teaching should be required reading for all NQTs and find a place in every staff room in the country. It will be invaluable to any teacher new to a year group or key stage, as it takes us back to the roots of good primary practice and why we ‘do’ teaching, enabling us to take a step back to review the big picture.' - NATE
