This follow-up book takes a fresh and creative look at QCT and is full of ideas to take your Circle Time skills and activities to new and exciting levels.
Itâ€™s bursting with ideas, which include how to make use of a Quality Circle Time Kitbag, how to adapt ideas for nursery and reception classes and how to use visualisation and puppets.
There is a thread of real creativity and drama running throughout the pages.
As the title suggests – More Quality Circle Time – continues some of the existing themes of Circle Time, whilst adding a series of new ideas to make the activity even more stimulating and rewarding for children. Not only does this book help add new strategies, but it also breaks out in new directions. For instance, there is a section dealing with using Circle Time in nursery and reception classes; there are also some illuminating case studies of Circle Time in use in specific locations.
The volume as a whole is brim full of ideas and, as is usually the case with this author, written in an easy style which draws the reader in. That said, I think that the reader may wish to familiarise themselves with other Circle Time publications, which perhaps provide a more â€˜nuts and boltsâ€™ introduction to the approach. In sum, this book represents a solid addition to the Circle Time literature.
