Enriching Science in Primary School is a collection of activities that aims, through challenging enrichment work, to inspire more children to study science, to encourage scientific literacy among all children, to foster creativity with regard to scientific thinking and to stimulate an informed debate among children about the application and direction that science takes in our increasingly complex society.
This brand new collection will allow you to: * enrich science lessons for all pupils and provide extension material that will challenge more able pupils * improve pupils' performance in this core subject by enriching the curriculum * enhance pupils' enjoyment of science and promote it as a subject for further study * support whole-school improvement by raising standards in core subjects * provide opportunities for pupils to expand their thinking skills through problem solving and to develop their social skills through teamwork * improve pupils' ability to self-direct their individual learning and help them to have fun and gain pleasure from thinking. Enriching Science in Primary School contains over 80 activities that can be used in the classroom to extend and enrich the experience of science in school for children, gifted or otherwise.
The activities are designed to stretch a child's thinking - the message is that science is intellectually challenging and exciting.
If children are excited by science, and have the ability and tenacity, they can go on to create a better future for all.
If their abilities and passions take them on other paths, then this collection will help them to appreciate the essential role that science plays in all our lives.
