Summary Book Review Enhancing Primary Science: Developing Effective Cross-Curricular Links by Kelly, Lois:

Download or read book Enhancing Primary Science: Developing Effective Cross-Curricular Links written by Kelly, Lois and published by McGraw-Hill Education (UK). This book was released on 2013-02-01 with total page 202 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How can other subjects in the primary curriculum enhance the teaching and learning of primary science? The key argument in the book is that children's learning is enriched through both discrete subject teaching and cross-curricular approaches to the curriculum and that children become more effective learners when they make links between the different subjects. This book gives helpful insights into why making effective cross-curricular links enriches science and discusses when and how to make effective and authentic links between science and other subjects. Each chapter tackles a particular subject and considers how it can enhance science learning through a variety of approaches and a wealth of ideas for the classroom. Written in a clear, accessible and informative style, this book: Includes contributions from a range of expert practitioners Provides a good balance between theory and practice Includes practical advice and tasks to help develop your confidence and skill in cross-curricular teaching Is illustrated with examples of pupils' voice This book is ideal for students, teachers and schools who wish to adopt a cross-curricular approach to teaching and enhance their primary science curriculum. Contributors: Alison Brade, Mark Hamill, Sharon Harris, Shelagh Hendry, Alison Hermon, Pat Hughes, Arthur Kelly, Liz Lawrence and Cliff Porter. "Let this book take you by the hand and guide you skilfully past the pitfalls of cross-curricular teaching in primary science whilst enjoying the celebration of creative and effective links between science and other subjects. It is full of practical suggestions for cross-curricular work but it never loses sight of the need for clear learning goals. Rooted in the principles of collaborative learning, this book inspires and informs." Anne Goldsworthy, Independent Science Consultant "This important book explores a practical framework for cross curricular teaching of science through a closely referenced theoretical rationale. There are a range of open ended tasks that illustrate the rich learning opportunities that can be planned for when expert subject knowledge combines with a pedagogy for enquiry. This is an essential read for all teachers inspired to tailor the curriculum to the needs and interests of their children." Alison Peacock, Headteacher of The Wroxham School and Transformative Learning Alliance, Network Leader for the Cambridge Primary Review "I enjoyed this book sharing insights into cross curricular approaches to primary science. The authors have successfully demonstrated how they have put theory into practice. There are many useful activities clearly outlined for use in the classroom based on the authors' own experiences. The reader will gain sound knowledge and understanding of how and why cross curricular approaches can enhance primary science through worked examples. My particular favourite was the History of Bread. I will certainly recommend this book to my students." Kathy Schofield, Senior Lecturer for Primary Science, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK "These ideas have given me the confidence that cross-curricular approaches can enrich scientific provision rather than dilute it."

This book was released on 2016-02-16 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: At last, a unique book that explores and exploits the links between primary mathematics and science so that you can promote learning in both of these important STEM subjects! Rich in engaging ideas and activities for the classroom this book helps you plan and teach well-structured lessons in a more integrated way. The book outlines key curriculum topics in both subjects and considers why it is important and beneficial to make connections between the two. As well as covering key subject knowledge (what you need to know) and teaching activities (what you need to do), the book explores learners’ mathematical and scientific needs, and defines the characteristics of effective teaching and learning, bringing it all together with ideas which you can use straightway in your classroom. Key features: • promotes an informed approach to integrating primary mathematics and science teaching • helps address the time constraints of delivering the primary national curriculum • presents engaging ideas which can be directly transferred to the classroom • provides a real-life context to mathematics and science activities to inspire student learning • helps you combine two closely related and sometimes tricky subject areas – why teach one subject when you can teach two at the same time! "Accessible, readable and engaging with a range of innovative teaching ideas, this is an invaluable book for all trainee and qualified primary teachers and other educational professionals with links to primary mathematics and science. A great 'go to' book for teachers and trainee teachers alike. Chapters are constructed with easy to read objectives and clear summaries. Many practical ideas, incorporating current research, as well as information on mathematicians and scientists, which is great for boosting children’s aspirations and also helping with teachers’ confidence on the subjects. A lovely, easy to access book, whether it is to use for reference, to dip in and out of or just to use alongside planning materials." Maria McArdle, Senior Lecturer PGCE & Mathematics Lead (Primary), University of Bedfordshire, UK

Summary Book Review EBOOK: Inspiring Science in the Early Years: Exploring Good Practice by Lois Kelly:

Download or read book EBOOK: Inspiring Science in the Early Years: Exploring Good Practice written by Lois Kelly and published by McGraw-Hill Education (UK). This book was released on 2015-02-16 with total page 168 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book explores the science inherent in good early years practice and provides a rich range of ideas to inspire you to ‘have a go’ in your setting. It provides a balance between theory which underpins good practice and plenty of ideas of how you might put the theory into practice. With a focus on how children learn about the world they live in and activities intended to develop scientific understanding the book offers an holistic approach, with key topics including: How children construct scientific meaning Tuning into children's initial scientific understanding How play supports the development of children's science ideas Providing a rich environment for learning early years science Developing children's scientific experiences This handy guide is ideal to support you if you are studying on an early years course, or if you are an established early years professional who wishes to enrich early scientific learning in your setting. Lois Kelly and Di Stead are Education Consultants specializing in primary science. This clearly written and engaging book examines Science in the Early Years through a variety of activities, including role-play, toys and technology. The vital importance of sensory experiences and language is emphasized throughout. The wide experience and knowledge of the authors guarantees a highly enjoyable read. The links to all curricula in the UK are extremely beneficial and I particularly liked the way that photographs and Key Points text boxes have been used throughout the book. The breadth and depth of writing about science makes this a highly desirable book for any practitioner working or studying in the Early Years. Kathy Brodie, Independent Early Years Consultant As an Early Years consultant who is passionate about children's thinking, exploring, questioning, investigating and most of all engaging…I really enjoyed this book. I especially liked it because it provokes practitioners to think about 'science' as the discovery and exploration of the world around us and not just as a National Curriculum subject. The mix of authors, their writing styles and the content of each chapter makes it a really easy and engaging read. Definitely one to add to your reading list if you work with children in the Early Years. Alistair Bryce-Clegg, Early Years Consultant As the title suggests, this book from the first page onwards inspires the reader to learn more about how to develop, enhance and incorporate effective practice in science in the early years. In addition to developing an understanding of how to approach the teaching of science, it gives a clearly articulated and accessible theoretical insight into how young children learn. To compliment this there are points of reflection, case studies, practical tasks and examples from the field. This is a valuable book for both students and practitioners alike as it goes beyond just giving suggestions for what to do; it explains the why and the how as well. Joanne McNulty, Manchester Metropolitan University This is a warm, accessible book, strongly grounded in research. It interweaves real life examples of science in the early years with underlying pedagogic principles and inspires new possibilities. The enthusiasm of the authors is contagious! Kendra McMahon, Bath Spa University
