Where Did the Science Go? Disappeared or Dissolved?
Education 3-13, v38 n4 p369-379 Nov 2010
This paper briefly explores the development of primary science from the early 1980s in order to understand the changing position of science within the wider primary curriculum. The current approach, a narrowly assessed curriculum which is meant to encourage a more broadly planned and delivered curriculum, will be discussed in respect of science being a "core" subject. The treatment of science within the Rose Review will be examined from the perspectives offered by subject associations.
