'Aspiring and newly qualified teachers will find in this book invaluable advice discussing reasons for and ways to implement teaching approaches that support primary children's effective learning in science. This book is important reading for beginning primary teachers throughout the UK.' - Wynne Harlen, OBE, Visiting Professor, University of Bristol
This book explores some of the wider issues within science teaching and learning. Some good starting points for discussion and clarification of terms and ideas e.g. science literacy. Some useful links to further reading and websites.
Lots of good advice and practical tasks for newly qualified teachers and those wishing to brush up on their understanding of Science in the curriculum.
This book is to be added into the reading list for the Primary science Year 2 modules. It will come in very useful as these trainees complete their Year 2 teaching practice after the module finishes so we can direct them to aspects of the book to support them in their preparation for placement - thank you!
Very useful text for primary teachers and for teacher trainees. Lots of in depth information regarding current science practice and ICT in the classroom.
An intereresting text that trainees would find useful to develop their understanding in a number of areas. It is good to see that assessment for learning and effective inclusion are considered.
This book is clearly organised and presented . It gives a valuable outline of different aspects relating to Primary Science
THIS BOOK IS EXCELLENT AND WILL BE PART OF ESSENTIAL READING FOR OUR STUDENTS
The chapters were different from other traditional science textbooks, which was interesting to read. The chapters addressed fundamental cross-curricular approaches where students could invisage how such a style of teaching could be possible.
This provides an interesting read, is clearly laid out and easily accessible for students to engage with.
have added this to our recommended reading list for all students
The book is very clearly laid out. The students find the concepts are clearly explained and they are able to find material very quickly. This has been used to support the students with their subject knowledge on the PGCE science course.
This is a useful book to supplement the trainees understanding about teaching primary science
Accessible and clear, used for FdA students to understand the practice and theory.
Very useful for school experience, link tutors and students
A good addititional text to support primary PGCE students' teaching of science.
Requires students to enagage with the notion of PCK.
The points for reflection in each chapter were useful to use as starters for in session discussion.
An informative text that I used in a session on understanding primary practice.
Thorough and well structured overview text
This is an accessible text for students , supporting classroom practice and providing clear and valuable information about the key concepts of primary science teaching and support.
