Fly to Mars Book Excerpt:

Why do astronauts feel heavy after take-off? Why are rockets long and thin? How do spacecraft orbit Earth? Covering lots of different aspects of space exploration, including looking at how spacecraft such as rocket launchers, satellites and space stations work and more human questions such as why astronauts need to keep so physically fit and what kit they need in their spacesuits, Fly to Mars! takes a fun look at forces in space. While learning about forces you will find that you also find out the answers to many questions that you have asked yourself about astronauts and space, and more. This Feel the Force series shows how forces and motion work in the world around us, in a set of high-interest situations. Each book includes three simple activities or investigations for readers to try. Overlays over large photos, plus diagrams, show how forces are acting in a given situation. Topics covered in the series include basic pushes, pulls and friction, air resistance, gravity, mass, weight and springs.

Teaching Primary Science Book Excerpt:

Primary Science: Promoting positive attitudes to conceptual learningis a full colour, core textbook to support, inform and inspire anyone training to teach Science at primary level. This book is a new kind of text linking subject knowledge and pedagogy in one package, rather than treating them as separate entities. The text aims to encourage trainee teachers to teach scientific concepts in contexts which will inspire the children to look at the world in new and intriguing ways, rather than presenting it as a list of facts and definitions. Encouraging critical reflection and offering practical support, this book will help trainee teachers to overcome negative attitudes to Science. The two part structure of the book first presents insights into the nature of science and science education, exploring issues such as the value and purpose of teaching Science in the primary school and the value of scientific enquiry. It then moves on to cover subject knowledge, relating it to pedagogy.
