Science and Literacy: a Guide for Primary Teachers
Science and Literacy was written by people from the Nuffield Primary Science Project and the Exeter Extending Literacy Project at a time when there was renewed emphasis on teaching about literacy in primary schools. The approach recommended in the book is based on the EXIT model that was devised by the team at Exeter to show how students can be helped to interact effectively with non-fiction texts.
The 110-page book was divided into three sections.
• Section 1 Teaching objectives
1 Developing science and literacy
2 Writing in different genres
• Section 2 Using Nuffield Primary Science
3 Nuffield Primary Science and the Literacy Hour
4 Suggested literacy lessons (at Key Stages One and Two)
• Section 3 Text interaction strategies
5 Information books
6 ICT and CD-ROMs
7 Science and stories
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.
