Praise for the First Edition:
' This is an excellent book not only for student teachers (probably its main target audience) but for anyone involved in science lessons in the primary school. It is easy to read and gives clear practical advice including suggestions for effective classroom organisation. A real strength of the resource is that the writers have a wide range of experience in teaching science in the primary school.' Primary Science Review
`Teaching Science in the Primary Classroom is a great resource that will help you turn the theory into straightforward fun science lessons. Well worth the money for students in training and experienced teachers needing some new inspiration' Child Education
This exciting new edition of a popular book offers the reader the following new elements:
- explicit advice on how to link science to cross-curricular learning
- updated advice on planning and assessment
- guidance on how to accommodate personalised learning within science
- more on games to use in science
- more on creativity
- more on questioning techniques, an important aspect of scientific enquiry
- a whole new chapter on using ICT to teach science.
There are lots of practical examples, and clear guidance on how to turn theory into creative and lively science lessons and activities. Examples of children's work are included, and there are plenty of helpful case studies.
