Nuffield Secondary Science: Themes
The developers of Nuffield Secondary Science described the resources they published as a 'quarry' from which teachers could select suitable material to build courses that would be significant for their students.
The resources are divided into eight themes. Each theme is divided in a number of fields of study. The contents of a theme were not intended to constitute a course. Also the numbering of the fields of study in the themes was not meant to imply an order in which the work should be taken.
The book of guidance for each theme provides detailed coverage of the suggested practical activities and of the range of possible teaching approaches.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
