The biggest challenge for primary science teaching is breaking the cycle of bad practice being replicated. Promoting Curiosity in Primary Science seeks to tackle this issue by providing methods and examples for the student teacher to equip them to teach in a way that promotes curiosity and improves children's enjoyment, ability and achievement. It highlights best practice in relation to creating classes that are curious, explaining what curiosity is and what it looks like. Illustrated with practical examples, case studies and ideas for classroom, it will support and develop student teachers in becoming confident, creative science teachers who cultivate engaged, curious learners.
