I am a secondary school teacher and have two children in the same primary school, Years 1 and 2. I have discovered that for this term, they will not be having any science lessons. The reason for this I have heard (albeit from a parent to my wife to me) is that the teacher planned to teach science but the plan was not very good so she decided not to. (this may not be entirely correct) I shall be finding out during the forthcoming parents consultation. Is this acceptable? I feel that Science is an important and fascinating subject for young children.
