Edited by Jenny Kennedy
Routledge – 1997 – 224 pages
Many primary school teachers feel that they do not have sufficient knowledge or understanding of scientific subjects, simply because they are not science specialists.
Written in clear jargon free style, this book takes a step-by-step approach to all the topics of the National Curriculum for science at Key Stages 1 and 2. Throughout, it gives useful illustrations and real life examples to demonstrate the ideas being raised.
'A comprehensive treatment of all the major aspects of the science national curriculum in a lucid, unpatronising style, supported by a good range of black and white diagrams and photographs … this book offers useful reference and support.' - Times Educational Supplement
