Join Heathfield Primary School for their Science Week that includes a ‘Hot seat a scientist’ session

Peter Riley ? Heathfield School 1

When the new Scholastic Primary Science series of books and CD-ROMs was launched at the BETT show at the beginning of the year, Heathfield School Bolton was one of the first schools to begin using it straight away.

By May, when the whole series was published, their new course was running so well that they devised a Science Week of activities that included setting up a planetarium in the hall. Peter Riley, author of six Scholastic Primary Science books, attended the school for a ‘Hot seat a scientist’ session with all seven classes.

    Science in Primary Schools

    With what I see as a decline in students taking up science as a profession, it is necessary to capture the young mind. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but chose to teach primary in Australia instead of high school. I was able to open up the minds of the children to a more science based approach to investigation. The children always responded well. Science books for children are necessary if we are to promote a career in science and the minds of the young.
