This innovative book aims to support schools in shifting teaching and learning in primary science by changing teacher perceptions of where science should be taught. The authors have not taken a traditional approach to the use of school grounds but a much bolder step in terms of a whole school approach to the science curriculum being taught outside. Key features of the book include:
  • Practical examples from teachers in schools across England
  • Approaches that combine science and the development of personal capabilities for teachers who want to develop a whole school approach relating to key skills in science
  • Innovative approaches to activities in science using the school grounds
  • Suggestions to help science leaders to develop their staff to be confident in using the school grounds across the science curriculum
  • Development of pupil independence in choosing when and why to take their learning outside the classroom boundariesWith a shift from indoors to outdoors, comes a range of practical considerations and challenges for both the school and the pupil and these are what the book tackles. It is a must read for students on ITT courses and Key Stage 2 teachers who are keen to move their settings forward and provide appropriate progression throughout the primary years.
Lynne Bianchi is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Science Education, Sheffield Hallam University. Rosemary Feasey is a leading expert in primary science.
