Now in its Third Edition, this text provides the background knowledge primary teachers need to plan effective programmes of work and answer children's questions with confidence. The new edition links explanations of scientific concepts with children's everyday experiences to help teachers and trainees foresee how they will present the subject knowledge to their pupils.

Shaped by the National Curriculum, this text explains key scientific theories and concepts which pupils at primary level, including very able children, need in order to understand the observations and investigations they undertake. A CD ROM of 200 science investigations for young students is included with the new edition, allowing teachers to explore the practical application of topics covered in the book.

This is an essential book for teachers, student teachers and anyone interested in the roots and growth of science education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for the second edition:

`This is a useful and interesting resource book for primary teachers and would help to develop their knowledge and teaching of science - I will certainly be using it to inform my planning and teaching of the subject' - Juliette Green, Primary School Teacher, Environmental Education

`Every teacher, however well trained in science, will have areas of uncertain understanding. This book is a prime resource for primary teachers of readable, accurate and relevant explanations of scientific phenomena, supported by impressively clear drawings. It has been revised to include recent scientific developments such as DNA and environmental issues, and continues to give sound advice about likely misconceptions whilst maintaining its focus on explaining the science for teachers' - Wynne Harlen, Professor in Education, University of Bristol
