This book aims to provide ready-made science lesson ideas that will considerably reduce the workload for many overburdened teachers. They can be easily adapted to suit varying levels of ability, and bring science to life.
The structure of the book mirrors the QCA scheme of work and separates chapters into year groups following the prescribed units for each year. This resource will provide a strong base of accessible ideas to enhance science education in the primary classroom.
