‘Switched on Science provides lots of fantastic lesson ideas, full of practical activities, that can easily be adapted (if needed) to meet the needs of each class. It is easy to use, even for the non-specialist, and simply makes the planning and teaching of science a breeze. Children look forward to their science lessons and can’t wait to find out what they will be exploring next.’
Tim Handley, Year 5 Teacher at Woodlands Primary School
Switched on Science will no doubt help teachers ‘get to grips’ with the new curriculum and certainly provides plenty of ideas to ensure the full coverage. Teachers lacking in confidence in science will embrace the ideas in each unit.
Switched on Science has stoked the children's enthusiasm for science and has allowed us to teach the new curriculum in a fun and engaging way! It has changed the way the school teaches science and as a result teachers are more confident to teach the new curriculum and children are more motivated to learn!
The detailed background knowledge in the Teacher Guides has been especially helpful to me as a non-science specialist. The activities and experiments are also really fun, one pupil shouted out, ‘I love this science!’ during a lesson on magnets!
