    Molly Potter, author of Outside the box, has come up with some wonderfully entertaining activities, which are ideal for off timetable slots during the school day such as 'golden time', 'treats' at the end of term or, in fact, any time when you feel your pupils need a light-hearted break from the curriculum. This photocopiable book is packed with innovative, exciting and unusual activities such as an 'intergalactic beauty contest' 'a noise scavenger hunt' or 'pencil olympics'! They are the type of activity that busy teachers, no longer have the time or energy to create. For ease of planning, the books are organised according to the size of the group i.e. activities for a) individuals, b) pairs or small groups and c) whole group activities. As many of the activities demand that pupils work in pairs or groups there are plenty of opportunities for pupils to work together and support each other and thus develop their team-building skills - another very important aspect of these books. The range and scope of this book means that after school club leaders or teachers will quickly be able to find an activity that suits their needs, depending on the amount of time available and the amount of noise and excitement they can tolerate!

    This book contains thought provoking, fun and unusual ideas to liven up PSHE lessons that will inspire teachers and pupils. The activities in these books aim to help pupils explore their own and other's attitudes, values and beliefs, develop skills (communication/emotional literacy) and consider other PSHE/Citizenship issues outlined in the non-statutory curriculum. Molly's ideas could be used to supplement any existing programme or scheme of work and they could also be used to complement the SEAL Curriculum (DfES: Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning). The thing that makes these books different from other PSHE resources is they provide a completely new and fresh approach to the teaching of PSHE - using many active learning techniques to prompt discussions and provide opportunities for pupils to thrash out issues together. This book is full of hands on inspirational ideas!
