Many primary teachers need help with their personal subject knowledge in science. Now that there is a nationally published scheme of work for science in primary schools, many teachers also need help in constructing lesson plans in order to cover all of the themes and possible activities in the scheme. Designed with those needs in mind, this book provides practical help in the form of sample lesson plans together with linked background subject knowledge for each of the science topics in the primary national curriculum. Each chapter has sample lesson plans for four different age-groups: reception, years 1-2, years 3-4 and years 5-6.

EBOOK Enhancing Primary Science Developing Effective Cross Curricular Links

This book gives helpful insights into why making effective cross-curricular links enriches science and discusses when and how to make effective and authentic links between science and other subjects.

EBOOK  Enhancing Primary Science  Developing Effective Cross Curricular Links

How can other subjects in the primary curriculum enhance the teaching and learning of primary science? The key argument in the book is that children’s learning is enriched through both discrete subject teaching and cross-curricular approaches to the curriculum and that children become more effective learners when they make links between the different subjects. This book gives helpful insights into why making effective cross-curricular links enriches science and discusses when and how to make effective and authentic links between science and other subjects. Each chapter tackles a particular subject and considers how it can enhance science learning through a variety of approaches and a wealth of ideas for the classroom. Written in a clear, accessible and informative style, this book: Includes contributions from a range of expert practitionersProvides a good balance between theory and practiceIncludes practical advice and tasks to help develop your confidence and skill in cross-curricular teachingIs illustrated with examples of pupils’ voiceThis book is ideal for students, teachers and schools who wish to adopt a cross-curricular approach to teaching and enhance their primary science curriculum. Contributors: Alison Brade, Mark Hamill, Sharon Harris, Shelagh Hendry, Alison Hermon, Pat Hughes, Arthur Kelly, Liz Lawrence and Cliff Porter. "Let this book take you by the hand and guide you skilfully past the pitfalls of cross-curricular teaching in primary science whilst enjoying the celebration of creative and effective links between science and other subjects. It is full of practical suggestions for cross-curricular work but it never loses sight of the need for clear learning goals. Rooted in the principles of collaborative learning, this book inspires and informs." Anne Goldsworthy, Independent Science Consultant "This important book explores a practical framework for cross curricular teaching of science through a closely referenced theoretical rationale. There are a range of open ended tasks that illustrate the rich learning opportunities that can be planned for when expert subject knowledge combines with a pedagogy for enquiry. This is an essential read for all teachers inspired to tailor the curriculum to the needs and interests of their children." Alison Peacock, Headteacher of The Wroxham School and Transformative Learning Alliance, Network Leader for the Cambridge Primary Review "I enjoyed this book sharing insights into cross curricular approaches to primary science. The authors have successfully demonstrated how they have put theory into practice. There are many useful activities clearly outlined for use in the classroom based on the authors’ own experiences. The reader will gain sound knowledge and understanding of how and why cross curricular approaches can enhance primary science through worked examples. My particular favourite was the History of Bread. I will certainly recommend this book to my students." Kathy Schofield, Senior Lecturer for Primary Science, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK "These ideas have given me the confidence that cross-curricular approaches can enrich scientific provision rather than dilute it."

This book provides an exceptional insight into how children learn science, as well as which teaching approaches have been found to be most successful. Drawing on the significant body of research carried out over the past 35 years, the book provides valuable evidence about which tried-and–tested approaches enhance learning and help children actually learn science. The book:• supports you in becoming more effective in teaching primary science• offers a reliable evidential base, founded on significant research findings• helps you make informed choices about which approaches to use in your teaching repertoire• provides support for completing your written assignments Overall the text helps you develop your knowledge and understanding of primary science, as well as how best to plan for teaching this important subject. Insights into how children best learn science, together with practical teaching ideas that have been tested in a systematic way, makes this an essential book for primary teachers in training and an invaluable guide for primary teachers teaching science in Key Stages One and Two. “This book makes a major, evidence-based contribution to teaching science in the primary school. It provides a solid grounding for busy teachers to access and use research findings to enhance their professional development and practice. Each chapter provides comprehensive coverage of a science topic, including: revision of subject knowledge; research findings on children's ideas; learning progression; suggested ways to teach, and research exemplars and lesson outlines. This book is a valuable resource for student teachers and for teachers with many years of experience. It is an indispensable addition to every primary teacher’s bookshelf and every university education department.” Rob Toplis, recently Senior Lecturer in Science Education, Brunel University, UK “This is a great ‘why to…’ and ‘how to…’ book. Michael Allen’s use of progressive understanding underscores both the unfolding stories of primary science alongside children’s developing grasp of the key ideas involved. His work is based on a wealth of research that provides the basis for the ‘why to…’ in curriculum organisation and planning. This is then brought to bear on considerable professional experience and classroom practice to provide the ‘how to…’ for teachers, covering a range of important topics in primary science. An excellent compendium of rationales and resources.” Mike Watts, Professor of Education, Brunel University, UK
