Science 5-14 Transition Reviews

Science books for P7 pupils and money from the Scottish Executive to pay for them - this must be an answer to a prayer. The knowledge and understanding strand is presented in a very accessible way with attractive illustrations which will appeal to this age group. Some chapters in the pupil book are dedicated to investigation skills and help pupils to plan, carry out, evaluate and present their findings. Throughout, attention is given to developing informed attitudes to science. Key ideas, wordbanks and questions end each chapter and could easily provide teachers with the test materials they need. There are many strengths in a publication of this kind. One is certainly the professionalism of the product. The design, colour and quality of the photographs, figures and illustrations make this very appealing. It is good to see Scottish examples (such as Edinburgh Castle on an extinct volcano). Variety is introduced with cartoon-like characters but everything is kept very clear. With these authors, the science content will be perfect... -- TES Scotland 20020301
