Packed with useful, creative ideas it significantly moves forward the national agenda with regard to Circle Time. Devotees of Circle Time strategies will find a wealth of new approaches between its covers whilst newcomers will find it an invaluable introduction. The book is extremely popular on all of my national training events. I personally look forward to the next instalment ' - "Alan Peat, International Educational Consultant (www.alanpeat.com)

"

Yvonne draws upon her experience of using visualisation and positive thoughts with young people in Circle Time. Many teachers recognise the value of promoting aspiration and optimism for young people but they lack the resources and opportunity to introduce these techniques.

This publication fills that gap providing:

" twenty Positive Thought scripts, each of which is also provided as a photocopiable poster and in a colour version on the accompanying disk.

" eight complete Dream Journey scripts with teacher notes on how to prepare children for these powerful visualisation techniques and ideas for follow up work.

These techniques can be used in several settings, to enrich Circle Time, to provide themes for assemblies or in the classrooms as part of Citizenship and the literacy hour. Yvonne also uses them to relax children before SATs.

A wonderful resource on its own and links are made with key stage 1 and 2 targets including:

" Developing confidence and responsibility and making the most of their abilities

" Preparing to play an active role as citizens

" Developing good relationships and respecting the difference between people

" Developing a healthy safer lifestyle.
