Haigh, Gerald – Primary Science Review, 2003
ASE's Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme is designed and run by people--teachers--who understand the pressures. They realise that the solution to good professional development is not to give the teacher extra work to do, but to draw added value from the tasks which the teacher is engaged in already or soon will be--and,…

Lander, Liz – Primary Science Review, 2003
The perception of the role of science subject leader (SSL) and the reality may not be identical but the aims are very similar. However, perceptions of how these aims might be achieved vary greatly. The "scene setting" aspects, so essential to success, are not always seen as being important by those coming into the role. This was echoed in the…

Nimmons, Fidelia – Primary Science Review, 2003
The science leader could find herself or himself in one or all of the following roles, depending to a large extent on how the head teacher sees the role: (1) Leadership; (2) Management; and (3) Administrator. Some head teachers are confident enough in their own overall leadership role to delegate responsibilities to other staff members, thus…

Borrows, Peter – Primary Science Review, 2003
Since science in primary schools is very safe, the coordinator's role in respect of health and safety can be a relatively modest one and integrated with other parts of the job. In this article, the author outlines the role of the science coordinator and sources of advice.

Stringer, John – Primary Science Review, 2003
A school's science coordinator may find himself/herself responsible for running a training day. This jewel in the crown of a good primary school will be even better if he/she follows reliable instructions. In this article, the author offers tips on how to run a good training day based on plan, do, and review. These tips represent the crystallised…

Kelly, Peter – Primary Science Review, 2003
An apt analogy for busy, pacey and accountable classrooms is the industrial production line. In this, the teacher (or supervisor) controls the transmission of ready-made packages of knowledge by providing appropriate tasks, and then monitors and assesses their acquisition. The pupils (or labour force) work to complete these tasks. Classrooms like…

Stringer, John – Primary Science Review, 2003
When the Association for Science Education published "I've done this before" in 1994, the ASE working party focused on continuity and progression. Now, nearly 10 years later, how far have schools progressed in their understanding and practice of transition? In this article, the author takes a look at the state of transition in primary science…

Lias, Sarah; Thomas, Colin – Primary Science Review, 2003
The authors use digital photographs to help children recall "key events" in a practical activity--those moments that provide rich learning opportunities. The captured images of particular events helped the children to recall what they were doing at a particular time and prevented confusion over which event was being discussed. They also…

Press, Colin – Primary Science Review, 2003
Some time ago a flyer on "Medics in Primary School" came the author's way. It described a programme for making placements in primary schools available to medical students. The benefits of the program to medical students and participating schools were highlighted, including opportunities to develop communication skills and demystify…

McFall, Dawn; Macro, Chris – Primary Science Review, 2003
Most early years practitioners heed this advice--"Well planned play, both indoors and outdoors, is a key way in which young children learn with enjoyment and challenge (DFEE/QCA, 2000, P. 25)--and provide environments in which children can play. Sefton LEA wanted staff to provide opportunities for children to construct "places to…

Brown, Susan; Morgetroyd, Sue – Primary Science Review, 2003
As a result of listening to and acting upon the ideas and suggestions of the children in the authors' reception class, a simple science activity grew into a multi-curricula "team-building" project. It wasn't until staff were assembling all the information to make a big book to enable the children to look back on their work, that the…

Hutchin, Vicky – Primary Science Review, 2003
Observing young children learning is an indispensable part of teaching in the early years and this is clearly acknowledged in the "Curriculum guidance for the foundation stage." It is through observing and assessing learning that one can find out what children know and what skills and concepts they appear to have acquired. In this…

Barr, Keith – Primary Science Review, 2003
At Brindishe School in South East London a system of teams with team leaders is used to manage and organise all subject work throughout the school year. It is a highly effective system, receiving due praise in a recent Ofsted inspection. In this article, the author sets out a typical science/technology year at Brindishe to show how the system…

Chapman, Steven – Primary Science Review, 2003
Traditionally science clubs have been seen as a lunchtime or after-school activity, run by volunteer teachers giving up their spare time. Increasingly, however, they are being used creatively as a way of delivering important curriculum enhancement activities or even as a vehicle for the science part of whole-school priorities such as working with…
