Taking science education across the world

Our future depends on exploring all the frontiers of science, on innovative technologies based on these explorations and on the development of scientific literacy in all peoples through science education.

Last two books in my Moving Up With Science series published today

The last two books in my Moving Up With Science series are being published today by Hachette.

Moving up with science has been written to follow on from Ways into Science and support children with their Lower Key stage 2 Science work. There are activities and questions on almost every spread which provide children with opportunities to develop their science enquiry skills and their critical thinking skills. These are identified at the back of each book so you can plot and monitor the children’s progress in science skill development.

Both can be purchased directly from the Hachette website using the links below.
