This free course, Primary science: supporting children’s learning, provides a brief insight into the nature of scientific knowledge and some of the factors that affect our attitudes to science. As you evaluate, revise and extend your knowledge of a selection of science topics that are commonly found within the primary curriculum, you will focus on how children learn scientific concepts and how they can be supported to develop scientific knowledge, understanding and skills.
This OpenLearn course is an adapted extract from the Open University course E209 Developing subject knowledge for the primary years, relevant to anyone interested in the education of 3 to 11 year old children.
