    to me it sounds more that you have lost a litlle confidence.
    rather than books, surely the first step should be to do some peer observation if you feel they have moved on so much in just 12 months?
    And get the sympathetic ones to observe you too!

    I agree with Hammie but if you want a quick and effective read try David Dunn ' How to be an Outstanding Primary Teacher'
    You can dip in and out - makes you feel good because you will be doing loads of it anyway but also some nice, neat tips. Hope you are on the mend and don't worry where others are... concentrate on you and your children.

  3. You're right. I've just had an observation which didn't go very well. I could feel sorry for myself but I feel determined to get better! I know exactly who I'll ask to go and see. Thank you good suggestion. x
  4. Thank you for this - I'm going to buy it on Amazon now!

    Any other suggestions welcome...I am open to ideas! x
  5. Thank for the recommendation for the book by David Dunn, I had a quick preview on google books and decided to get it as it is very straightforward and allows you to easily add each of these things to your teaching practice or to say to yourself - "I am already doing this" plus to be able to ad in afew more activities and practices. It is very clear... something academic texts don't always achieve. It is classroom based.
