Nicky believes she was born to be primary school teacher. She loves the job and continues to work with passion and enthusiasm. She now focuses on just primary science in her role as advisory teacher across the Tees Valley. With twenty years of experience, she also runs highly successful courses at the National Science Learning Centre for teachers from all around the country and is constantly being asked if there is a book or teaching resource she can recommend for primary science inspiration. She struggled trying to suggest a `one stop shop' that has lots of usable, great ideas, linked to the Key Stage One and Two primary science curriculum, so she decided to write this book!
