Cambridge Primary Science is a flexible series that can be used to support a range of teaching methods in different settings. We do this by offering a variety of ideas for activities to support teaching and learning of each objective in the curriculum framework, from which you can select those most suited to your learners.

In keeping with the Cambridge Internaitonal Examinations curriculum framework, Cambridge Primary Science strongly supports a science curriculum in which enquiry is central. Support for the scientific enquiry learning objectives is embedded across the series, with full guidance for teachers on how to develop the required skills. Throughout, activities are suggested that will help learners to discover and investigate scientific concepts for themselves in an engaging way.

Cambridge Primary Science is a truly international series, written for a global audience. Exercises focussing on scientific vocabulary and suggestions for classroom discussion are included throughout the series, thus supporting development of language as well as subject knowledge. Examples from a wide range of international settings are included and alternative activities are suggested in case certain materials are hard to come by in your part of the world.
