    1. thought this is the better of the 3 books in the series so far of a newish teacher in the dales as in the mode of Sheffield and phinn


    2. Just about to embark on my own journey into primary teaching this book made me laugh so much I couldn t wait to begin my own adventure and meet a group of children as fabulous and individual as those I was reading about I would definitely recommend



    3. Essentially a nostalgic read, this was perfect summer holiday fare As a teacher, I had tremendous sympathy for Seed s tales of juggling new government edicts with the demands of the actual classroom, and enjoyed his depictions of parents evenings, school trips and attempts to modernise the curriculum He perfectly captures the clash between the old and new, in the rural community and in education broadly, without being excessively sentimental and without a trace of cynicism This is not at all a [...]


    4. This is a gentle easy read Andy Seed takes us through his first year as a primary school teacher in the Yorkshire Dales Although it isn t hugely thought provoking, readers who can remember what education was like in the mid 1980s will find this an enjoyable and amusing book I was disappointed, though, when, after finishing it, I read the paragraph at the beginning which states that the characters are based on amalgamations of real people rather than particular individuals For me this took away s [...]


    5. Loved this book Funny and heart warming Andy Seed s first year of teaching is in a Yorkshire Dales Primary School He brings all the characters to life, the children in his class, the teachers and the villagers The kids are hilarious but he is never cruel in the telling of these tales You can just tell that he loves all of these kids and he would have been a fantastic teacher.


    6. Really nice and sweet book Almost makes you want to take up teaching in a tranquil spot in the country side Nahhhhh A enjoyable read I may try track down the following books, but I am not in a rush to do so


    7. As a teacher it showed the insight we have every year when we meet our new class for the first time and all the mishaps and stories that ensue as the year goes by A must read for every teacher and a godd read for those who aren t.


    8. Excellent If you like Gervase Phinn, you will like this too I will never tire of reading good memoirs, especially with humour in It was easy to recognise the characters he portrayed, we have all met them Anyone who is, or was a teacher thoroughly recommend.


    9. This book was really good, so good in fact that I reading the second book This man was a teacher and he talks about his life as a primary school teacher, very insightful.




    10. Read this book during my first term as teaching assistant hearty throughout, and inspiring in parts Also comforting to go through similar experiences at the same time.
