To new teachers actual classroom conditions with five to eight year olds must seem like a chaotic confrontation. Careful planning and evaluation is essential. How to start? How to train the children into self-help, to give individual attention to slow learners, yet keep the advanced child from being bored, and all the others working? The two films, one from Northampton and the other from Southampton, show experienced teachers in very different schools and from different social backgrounds within their working day. The ideas and examples seen in practical working situations are meant for further discussion on the methods used and to trigger new ideas and concepts.

This film is of historical interest and reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. But the issues raised are timeless.
