This book will offer a comprehensive overview of good practice in teaching primary science in a creative and imaginative way. There is currently widespread concern that science teaching is being done didactically and boringly in primary schools thus killing the spark that children may have for the subject. The book will show how science can be both stimulating and exciting and it will be structured to show creative links to other areas of the curriculum.The ideas in the book have been developed by the authors during twenty years of teaching and research. They have wide ranging experience in schools and universities, as teachers, lecturers and curriculum developers, and also fairly unique experience among the organisations that contribute to the enhancement of science in schools.
