Practical, useful and informative, this book provides ideas and suggestions on how to interpret and develop the primary science curriculum in an interesting and challenging way. Bringing together creative thinking and principles that still meet National Curriculum requirements, the themes in the book encourage teachers to:
- teach science with creative curiosity
- value the unpredictable and unplanned
- thrive on a multiplicity of creative approaches, viewpoints and conditions
- be creative with cross-curricular and ICT opportunities
- reflect on their own practice.
For teachers new and old, this book will make teaching and learning science fun by putting creativity and enjoyment firmly back onto the primary agenda.
'Enjoyment is the birthright of every child. Children learn better when they are excited and engaged – but what excites and engages them best is truly excellent teaching, which challenges them and shows them what they can do…' - National Primary Strategy 2003
