Home Publications Nuffield Primary Science

Careful attention to issues of the SPACE research approach ensured the relevance of the research to the development of curriculum materials. Curriculum support materials for teachers of KS1 and KS2 (5-11 years) pupils were published by Collins Educational as the Nuffield Primary Science materials (1995). The materials are constructivist in orientation.

The books consist of 11 teachers' guides at each of KS1 and KS2 covering different topics such as Materials and Forces.

There is one pupils' book to match each teachers' guide at KS1 and two books (one for each of Years 3-4 and 5-6) to match each teachers' guide at KS2.
