Can the past inform the future of science in primary schools?

Bolden, D. and Tymms, P. and Merrell, C. (2009) 'Can the past inform the future of science in primary schools?', Education in science., 232 . pp. 10-11.


This article reports the main findings from a Review commissioned by the Wellcome Trust into science in primary schools. On the basis of those findings, it is argued that the current approach to primary science and the drive to raise standards in literacy and numeracy are turning pupils off science in primary schools, the fallout of which can be seen in secondary, further and higher education.
