Hello there
The main ones apart from Cremin's book is Russell Greig's how to be an outstanding primary school teacher
You would also need to brush up on your subject knowledge:
For maths, you have to get Maths explained by Haylock
Teaching Primary English, Science etc series of books is good
Try NCTEM website, read children's fiction books and poetry
Good luck!

Sorry I forgot to also tell you about this!
The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) has recently repurposed the face to face CPD courses it offers to be delivered online. The courses, which are free to attend, will help improve your subject knowledge, confidence in teaching computing and contribute to your ongoing professional development. The CPD can also help you work towards to a nationally recognised qualification in Primary Computing over the next few months, as described here - https://teachcomputing.org/primary-certificate

Four facilitator led courses are currently available, with each course consisting of between two and four facilitator led sessions over the space of two weeks. Each session lasts for around 30 minutes to an hour:

- Introduction to primary computing - https://teachcomputing.org/courses/C...mary-computing

- Primary programming and algorithms – https://teachcomputing.org/courses/C...and-algorithms

- Teaching and Leading KS1 computing – Module 1 - https://teachcomputing.org/courses/C...uting-module-1 Module 2 - https://teachcomputing.org/courses/C...uting-module-2

- Teaching and Leading KS2 computing – Module 1 - https://teachcomputing.org/courses/C...uting-module-1 Module 2 - https://teachcomputing.org/courses/C...uting-module-2

Details of other online courses, which involve a greater amount of independent study, rather than being facilitator led, are available here – https://teachcomputing.org/courses?u...filter-results

To get started, click the “Create an account” button on any of the pages linked to above and follow the on screen instructions. This will enable you to create an account on the STEM Learning / Teach Computing website and book a place on a course.
