Teachers are constantly challenged to find imaginative ways to bring alive the subject matter prescribed in programmes of study. This is where the Mick Waters introduces series comes in. With plenty of practical ideas and all the advice you'll need to get started, Teaching with flowers is a comprehensive introduction to using flowers as a medium by which to explore a range of learning themes and develop cross-curricular skills with children. Reinforce their understanding of angles, scale and proportion while creating beautiful arrangements. Let the symbolism of flowers introduce your class to big issues, like war and peace, the Holocaust, and celebrations in other cultures.

Use flowers to explore the work of great artists, and maybe even encourage the children to become one themselves. If you are looking for hands-on activities to shake up your usual classroom routine, look no further. Julie Warburton has provided everything you need to get started; discover for yourself the transformative effects of teaching with flowers in this imaginative, thoughtful and beautiful book.

Teaching with flowers is a new edition to the Mick Waters introduces series. Mick is perhaps best known as former Director of the Curriculum at QCA (Qualifications and Curriculum Authority) and in this series of books he introduces a selection of the very best in practical resources for the curriculum.

For teachers of children aged 9-12 in all subject disciplines.


Julie Warburton taught in an inner-city school, before moving on to school management. Through her work with the Black Country Challenge she has addressed the wider educational agenda as a teaching and learning consultant, working with a range of primary and secondary schools on transition and literacy. This book is the cross-pollination of her two passions: education and flowers.

Professor Mick Waters is best known as former Director of the Curriculum at the QCA (Qualifications and Curriculum Authority) where he gained an heroic reputation amongst teachers whilst both consulting, advising and explaining the new curriculum; making it relevant and meaningful for professionals working directly with children and young people. A former Headteacher, Mick is passionate about the role of education in improving life chances for pupils and is still very much involved with teaching and learning. He is the President of the Curriculum Foundation and a charismatic speaker who pushes the boundaries to improve learning and make schools better. One of the UK's leading educational mentors brings you the book you have been waiting for!
