Takes the principles detailed in the bestselling and award-winning Making Every Lesson Count and applies them specifically to the primary school.
In Making Every Primary Lesson Count, full-time primary teachers Mel Scott and Jo Payne share easy, effective strategies for ensuring every lesson makes a difference for children in primary classes.

The book is held together by six pedagogical principles – challenge, explanation, modelling, practice, feedback and questioning – and provides simple, realistic classroom strategies that all primary teachers can embed immediately.
At the heart of the strategies in the book are excellence and growth: ensuring teachers and pupils can aim high and put in the effort required to be successful. Tried-and-tested gimmick-free teaching strategies are shared from across the curriculum and all primary year groups.
The ideas presented in Making Every Primary Lesson Count have a high impact on learning in the classroom without diminishing teachers’ work–life balance. The strategies in the book help pupils to leave primary school as confident, successful learners with the skills and knowledge required of them.
