"This book makes a major, evidence-based contribution to teaching science in the primary school. It provides a solid grounding for busy teachers to access and use research findings to enhance their professional development and practice. Each chapter provides comprehensive coverage of a science topic, including: revision of subject knowledge; research findings on children's ideas; learning progression; suggested ways to teach, and research exemplars and lesson outlines. This book is a valuable resource for student teachers and for teachers with many years of experience. It is an indispensable addition to every primary teacher's bookshelf and every university education department."
Rob Toplis, recently Senior Lecturer in Science Education, Brunel University, UK
"This is a great 'why to...' and 'how to...' book. Michael Allen's use of progressive understanding underscores both the unfolding stories of primary science alongside children's developing grasp of the key ideas involved. His work is based on a wealth of research that provides the basis for the 'why to...' in curriculum organisation and planning. This is then brought to bear on considerable professional experience and classroom practice to provide the 'how to...' for teachers, covering a range of important topics in primary science. An excellent compendium of rationales and resources."
Mike Watts, Professor of Education, Brunel University, UK
