More than 4 weeks availability


Concise, simple, yet motivating and inspiring, Haigh's book hones in on the essential 'big' ideas behind the craft of teaching primary science, condensing them into manageable bite-sized chunks and step-by-step rules which can be put into practice from Day One. In a world driven by testing and assessment, there is often very little opportunity or time to explore new, creative and more effective approaches to teaching science at a primary level. In response to this, Alan Haigh has written a book that will equip you with the science knowledge, skills and confidence to plan your own lessons, teach creatively and encourage a discovery approach to learning. This book will not only improve your teaching of science but will make it hugely enjoyable to boot.
