Primary Science - 153Primary Science - 153

The articles in this issue, no. 153, show how science is found within music and art. The issue also draws upon the outside area as a place for this to take place and where further science can be found, whether in the playground or by creating engaging walks through a park. Science should be valued throughout the academic year and be related in meaningful ways to other areas of the curriculum. So, beyond science and the arts, let’s aim for science for all – all learners, all schools and all year round.
