This third edition of the bestselling textbook Science 5-11 has been fully updated to provide a synthesis of research and best practice in teaching and learning that focuses on successful ways to engage and motivate young scientists.
Responding to the new curriculum, particularly `Working Scientifically', this edition now includes:
New sections on whole-school assessment, mentoring, transitions and a topics-based approach.
Reference to the `big ideas' of biology, chemistry and physics with chapters clearly related to this new subject structure.
Updated tables of progression in each topic area and reference to cross-curricular contexts.
New self-assessment questions for teachers, the option for higher-level thinking and further reading.
An updated chapter on subject leadership with an increasing emphasis on monitoring progress.
Bringing together research undertaken from a range of activities in the field, this book forms a comprehensive and clear guide, outlining the subject knowledge that a teacher needs, the curriculum requirements and the best ways to go about teaching. A practical guide ideal for students, trainees, mentors and other practising teachers, the book provides information on appropriate science topics for Key Stage 1 and 2.
