Explaining Primary Science has been well written with the primary trainee teacher in mind throughout. Subject knowledge is presented in a way that is easy to access with explicit links to the National Curriculum as well as creative activities to develop trainees’ pedagogy and confidence to teach this important subject. This will be a welcome addition to the Primary Science reading list at LSBU.
This book covers essential content across the sciences to guide teachers to meet curriculum requirements. The authors write in a clear and accessible manner. With a long-standing experience in teacher education, the authors encourage teachers to deepen their interest in science and support them with developing their practice with pupils. A helpful resource for those beginning to teach.
Trainee teachers who are not scientifically-minded may find the prospect of teaching science daunting - but this excellent book is here to help and give confidence. It's a really approachable book, which demystifies science, ensuring teachers have the confidence to tackle the subject in the best possible way to help their pupils. The layout is good; it's easy to find what you want and the activities, of which there are a huge number, are clearly delineated, making navigation easy. An invaluable book for new and for experienced teachers.
This is a very useful book to teachers of children of primary age, and those working within the equivalent of Scotland's "Broad General Education" phase. It is full of highly practical activities right across the curriculum, with explicit links to both Scotland's Curriculum for Excellence and the English National Curriculum Whether confident in science or not, this book will help you teach confidently and effectively in all of the principal areas of science. Highly recommended in particular for Probationers/NQTs.
This is a very comprehensive and hugely useful book to both trainee and practising primary teachers. It is directly related to the current curriculum, and weaves working scientifically through as it is intended to be experienced - through the science content itself. Learning objectives are highlighted, there is a good range of content and context, and the suggestions for practical activities will be of great support for planning and in the classroom.
A very concise supportive insight as to how Science should be delivered and supported within the primary context.
Explaining Primary Science by Chambers and Souter is a no nonsense examination of subject knowledge required to teach the subject at primary school level. A handy reference to curriculum links in England and Scotland is also helpful for the busy teacher or student. The video link to Sages website to view the video experiments an added bonus. These are quick snapshots to show what resources are required. as well as showing results of the investigations. I would recommend my students purchase this in preparation for their' NQT' year.
