`As a teacher who has specialized in supporting "at risk" students I believe the use of Circle Time can be of help bridge the academic/ral divide. The authors, quite rightly, emphasise the Circle Times in not an advice sympathy or therapy group and they also write "pupils who have a positive view themselves are likely to achieve more, both socially and academically, than those pupils whose self-esteem in low' - Simon Wheeler, Suffolk LEA Pupil Behaviour Project Officer

Teresa Bliss and George Robinson explore the impact that Circle Time can have on the development of social behaviours, ethics and morality. Many new activities are added to the original repertoire.

The book includes:

" a link between Circle Time and the teaching of the moral and spiritual curriculum

" a plan for a terms developmental work

" ways in which issues starting outside the circle can be supported within the security of an already established circle group

" worksheets to increase the range of activities.

This book is the answer to teachers who ask for more ideas to extend the Circle Time programme.
