Summary This book is about the very best of primary classroom practice in science: six schools, six science topics, with children from ages five to eleven years. The teaching and children's learning are described in a straightforward style, richly illustrated with examples of children's work. The book was written initially for beginning teachers, but experienced teachers who reviewed the drafts welcomed the combination of 'real' classroom examples coupled with a more theoretical commentary. Above all, they welcomed the essence of the book which, as the opening sentence indicates, is 'about creativity in teaching and a celebration of the skills and expertise of primary teachers in the area of science'. The book will be invaluable reading for both trainee and practising primary school teachers
