about

Science is rightly a fundamental part of primary school education, but that doesn¿t make it easy to teach - especially for teachers without a science background. This straight talking book from an experienced science writer and communicator looks at how to make the most of it and give primary school children a good grounding in the topic.

Getting Sciencesets out to engage the sense of wonder. The science in this book is not for the children, but for the adults who have to explain it. Starting with a whirlwind tour of the great milestones of modern science,Getting Sciencegoes on to take each of the main curriculum topics and give it a new twist. It provides the information needed to understand the key topics better and be able to put them across with enthusiasm and energy.

This book will help teachers to get children excited by science, to understand science rather than just answer questions.Getting Sciencemakes science fun, approachable and comprehensible to those who just don¿t get it.
