About the Author

Hywel Roberts has taught in secondary, primary and special settings for over 25 years. He contributes to university education programmes and writes regularly for TES as the "travelling teacher". A true Northerner, Hywel deals in botheredness, creative practice, curriculum development and imagineering. He was recently described as "a world leader in enthusiasm" and his first book, Oops! Helping Children Learn Accidentally, is a favourite among teachers.


A book of happy accidents and improvisations that would be a lovely addition to any teacher's bookshelf - Ian McMillan, Poet, broadcaster and comedian The voice of a true pioneer, clear and sure in the belief that teaching is an amalgam of so many things beyond 'subject knowledge'. The book races along at an almost breathless speed-just like the writer. Luke Abbott, Director of Mantle of the Expert Oops! is about principles. It's about a mentality that encourages us to drop the reins of rigid, boring schemes of work and instead create learning that is exciting and relevant! Jamie Portman, Assistant Headteacher, Campsmount Technology College Hywel Roberts' message is that engagement is the message and in delivering it he's sharp, he's intellectually underpinned, he's effervescent, he's the teacher you wished your teachers had seen teach. Phil Beadle, teacher, broadcaster, author If you want the children in your school to make great progress and remember you as a teacher who made learning fun, dip into this book for inspiration and ideas. Diane Heritage, Deputy Lead Associate, North of England National College This book had Hywel Roberts' inspirational stamp of wit and infectious enthusiasm running right through its core: I read the whole book with a huge grin on my face. Ruth Saxton - Primary School Teacher and Chair for NATD Whether you are a student teacher, NQT or school leader, this is a genuine guide to pushing your own practice. Dave Whitaker, Executive Deputy Headteacher, Springwell Community School Hywel makes the art of questioning, waiting and trusting learners to rise to the situation safer and less scary for teachers. Go on - try one or two of his ideas - they really work. Karen Ardley, Karen Ardley Associates It's no accident that Hywel Roberts - himself a world leader in enthusiasm - has written a must read book for teachers. Oops! brings together insight, pizzazz, wit and quirkiness into one happy place, it's a joy of a book written by a great teacher. Alistair Smith, learning consultant and author, Oops! must be essential reading for student teachers. It is a dossier for practical teaching and describes the pedagogy of 'the buzzing'. - I am buying a copy for each of the team at school. Richard Kieran, Headteacher, Woodrow First School Oops! makes you smile, wince, laugh, and ponder ... and, most of all, think; think how enjoyable teaching can be if we invest in ourselves as teachers. Mick Waters, Professor of Education at Wolverhampton University
