 Essential Primary Science by Alan Cross and Adrian Bowden

If you are teaching or learning to teach primary science, this is the toolkit to support you! Not only does it cover the essential knowledge and understanding that you need to know, it also offers over 200 great ideas for teaching primary science - so no more late nights thinking up creative new ways to teach key concepts!

Each chapter is organized around the following structure:

• What science do you need to know and understand?

• What science do your pupils need to learn?

• What is the best way to teach these topics in the primary classroom at KS1 and KS2?

Sample pupil activities are also included and there is coverage of how to deal with common misconceptions within every chapter.

Written in a friendly style, the authors draw on their own teaching experience and understanding of the National Curriculum and QTS standards to provide an essential guide to teaching primary science.
