eleanor NORRIS (NEE atkinson)
As an Independent Primary Science Consultant, I get to do what I love every day, investigate, educate, question and research everything and anything related to primary science and current best practice. I love the practical nature of this subject and this is what keeps science exciting for me.
Since winning a PSTA in 2015 I have been blessed with many opportunities. In 2016 I worked with RI and Professor Saiful Islam in producing a series of primary lessons linked to the Christmas Lectures broadcast on the BBC. in 2017 I contributed to the latest edition of the ASE's "Guide to Primary Science" writing a chapter on How to promote understanding through dialogue. In 2018 I wrote a series of science books with
Pearson Publishers for the International market and in 2019 I began to co-ordinate a PSTT cluster of schools in the North West supporting and facilitating improvement and enjoyment of science in my hometown.
In addition to all of this I enjoy being a Hub leader for PSQM, an associate consultant for Ogden Trust and a Consultant with SEERIH and the Greater Manchester Networks. Everything I do is about promoting the importance and the enjoyment of science.
When I am not "working" you will usually find me in the garden tending to my fruits and vegetables, cooking, entertaining friends, and family or walking with my husband and our little rescue dog Nelly, on the sand dunes near Southport or in the beautiful Lancashire countryside.
