Published in 1998. The Desirable Outcomes for pre-fives and the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 set out the requirements for learning from nursery through to the end of Key Stage 1 in both science and technology. This book will increase the confidence of the classroom assistants by offering suggestions for improving their subject knowledge in line with these requirements, and advice on how to support the teacher and the child through appropriate learning activities. The handbook will also benefit headteachers and teachers in early years settings who are training volunteers or classroom assistants (perhaps taking STA, BTEC or NNEB courses).
