    Changes to the primary curriculum over recent years have widened choice for all, yet the current wave of thinking seems determined to retreat 'back to basics'. This vibrant volume examines the many ways in which history can include and complement the teaching of English, to the greater benefit of both.
    Enthusiastic practitioners explain how lively classroom activities can influence the level of children's literacy, which means that the importance of the basics is recognised without compromising on the choice of subjects open to children.
    History emerges as a wonderful tool for exploring not only language and literature, but also as a way of stimulating the imagination and encouraging talk. The contributors here are all passionate about this vital link between two complementary subject areas and will convincingly win you over.
    The book is an invaluable companion for the student teacher, primary teacher and teacher educator.
