    Overview

    This book is for teachers and student teachers looking to improve their practice in primary science.

This is supported by modules on different aspects of teaching and learning in science, including:

    • building on children's own ideas
    • how to ask and answer questions
    • managing practical work in the classroom
    • science for very young children
    • effective assessment, self-assessment and feedback
    • cross-curricular links
    • ICT and science
    • science outside the classroom

    Each module comprises of an introduction to the aspect; workshop materials to help teachers reflect on teaching, planning and managing primary science; guidance about typical pitfalls and problems; and suggestions for further reading.
