Science Fiction, Science Fact! Ages 8–12 is a book for story-loving primary teachers who want to find a creative way to teach science. Contextualising science in a story that pupils know and love, the book contains a wide range of activities and investigations to help Key Stage 2 pupils engage in science learning, while also extending aspects of the English national curriculum.

The book offers valuable support to busy teachers and, by ensuring science lessons are enjoyable and accessible for pupils, helps children get involved in investigations in a way that is memorable for them. Using coloured illustrations and diagrams throughout, the book contains:

  • the relevant scientific context alongside a link to one of nine exciting children’s stories;
  • clever and unique suggestions to ‘storify the science’;
  • instructions for teachers to give to their pupils;
  • tips on how to deliver the lesson in an immersive way;
  • guidance on assessing pupils’ level of understanding.

Science Fiction, Science Fact! Ages 8–12 is packed full of ideas for weaving science into cross-curricular lessons, and is an invigorating and essential resource for Key Stage 2 teachers and science co-ordinators seeking to inject some creativity into their science lessons.

If you want to deliver superlative primary science lessons this is, without doubt, the book for you. Follow its example and you will teach children how to think.

A totally spellbinding fusion of story telling and science.
