Primary Science (PS) is the journal for primary members of the ASE and is published five times a year. Primary Science aims to share information and ideas that support effective practice in science education focused at the primary school level through transition to early secondary education. It includes articles about teaching, learning and assessing science for all children in the 3 – 12 year age range. Topics covered include selecting, adapting and managing learning activities both within and outside the classroom, research findings, adaptations for children with special needs, health and safety, use of technology and other resources.
Contributions from classroom practitioners are encouraged. Letters, opinion pieces, notes from other organisations and resource reviews are also included. PS often publishes themed issues and recently these have included: assessment, science and scientists, forces, gardens for life, biodiversity, weather and science across the world.
Non ASE members may read selected articles from PS, offered as 'tasters' to give a flavour of the journal. These free articles are those listed without padlocks. Join ASE for full access. Click here for more details.
