Babies’ had meanwhile been excluded from elementary schools but nursery provision, sometimes closely associated with the schools, was an increasing focus for attention. In the Hadow Reports of 1931 and 1933,4 the nursery/infant and junior phases within primary education were increasingly sharply distinguished, and in many areas separate schools provided for each phase. The 1944 Education Act, in establishing secondary education for all, put the official seal on universal primary education almost by default, and by that time a quite distinctive ‘culture’ of primary education had emerged, informed by developmental psychology.

Balsa wood for junior crafts, historical and scientific models enabled ‘a valuable introduction to the scope and limitations of natural wood, and to three-dimensional thinking’, ‘practice in measuring, hand and eye training, and the development of manual skill’ as well as offering ‘the emotional stimulus of achievement’. Advertisements for art materials, plasticine, pottery equipment and stage lighting held up the model of a rich and creative curriculum, even to those readers whose own practice in school may have been more limited.

Biographical and autobiographical sources for children and teachers give a more intimate view of individual experiences of primary education: V. Bell, The Dodo, London, Faber and Faber, 1950; G. Holmes, The Idiot Teacher; London, Faber and Faber, 1952. Ethnographic studies later amplify this type of account, for example, M. Armstrong, Closely Observed Children: the diary of a primary classroom, Richmond, Writers and Readers, 1980. Film and video sources may be found increasingly for the later decades of the century, and a readily available oral source lies in the memories of teachers and children.
