Turner, Jane; Bage, Grant – Primary Science Review, 2006
The Primary National Strategy for England argues that teachers need use the QCA units of work (or whichever scheme their school follows) only as a baseline or fallback: drawing on their "own" expertise as storytellers, creative thinkers, problem-solvers and as experts on their own pupils, to design activities that are engaging, motivating and…

Dunne, Ian B. – Primary Science Review, 2006
Science is a story, a narrative, and scientists are storytellers. Teaching is quite possibly the ultimate in storytelling so if one is teaching science he/she is already storytelling.

Howe, Alan – Primary Science Review, 2004
Science is creative. Write it big, shout it loud, because the message is not getting through. There is much discussion about creativity in education at the moment, yet how often does one hear the minister for "this" or the expert in "that" discuss creativity and immediately start talking about the arts? If "creativity" in the curriculum is…

Overton, Dave – Primary Science Review, 2004
