This text is the second part of a seven-year ethnography of individual pupils from the ages of four to eleven in an English primary school. It presents a sociological analysis of children coping with the social worlds of home, playground and classroom over the seven years of a primary school career. The study provides holistic insights into the biographies of four children during their primary school years and the case studies give prominence to the voices and perspectives of parents, children and teachers interacting over time. The reader is invited to engage personally with these accounts and is guided, as the book progresses, to an overall analysis of the significance of social relationships and learning processes on the childrens's career trajectories.
