This book begins with an overview of the first months of a child's life, with an indication of the major movement milestones which all children should reach before they enter the pre-school phase. The rest of the book gives information about developing children's physical skills in dance, games and gymnastics throughout the pre-school and infant school phase. It also addresses many of the contemporary issues surrounding the delivery of the PE curriculum in schools including the assessment of pupil's performance. This book will help students, teachers and curriculum leaders deliver a sound PE education to children aged 3-7, and will also prove useful to all those involved in early years education. Pauline Wetton is currently a lecturer in education and an assistant director of sport at the University of Durham. The Teaching and Learning in the First Three Years at School series is edited by Joy Palmer.

Physical education and sport in schools is undergoing renewed emphasis and the primary sector key stages are rightly seen as fundamental elements in the new initiatives. The majority of primary school teachers are non-specialists and there is, therefore, a particular need for information on safe planning and practice in physical education to be designed to meet their specific requirements. Safety is a central issue in P.E. and as risk assessment is now a statutory part of Health and Safety at Work requirements, it is vitally important that all staff have a clear understanding of their responsibilities. As all schools are now obliged to undertake risk management, this book addresses a very real need. Safety and Risk in Primary Physical Education gives a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of safety in P.E. in primary schools, including: * legal responsibilities * policies on good practice and risk * pupil readiness * equipment and the environment * each subject area included in the National Curriculum - gymnastics, games, dance, athletics, outdoor and adventurous activities and swimming * checklists of key points for safe practice.

Amidst sweeping changes in science, feminism, and attitudes about gender, race, and sexuality, women teachers debated how to achieve equality for their female students and themselves.
