Science beyond the Classroom Boundaries for 3-7 year olds Paperback / softback
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 EnglandApproaches that combine science and the development of personal capabilities for teachers who want to develop a whole school approach relating to key skills in scienceInnovative approaches to activities in science using the school groundsSuggestions 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.
