With over 30 years’ primary experience of teaching Year 2 to Year 6 behind her, Carol has held the position of Science Leader in a number of schools across Wiltshire. Carol has a great passion for the subject; she loves seeing children get excited by the world around them and is keen to develop true feelings of awe and wonder by opening children’s eyes to the world around them (not to mention her own!).

Inspired by Darwin, Carol has spent much time maximising teaching and learning opportunities in the Shaw School grounds by developing a ‘Thinking Walk’ including; a wildflower meadow, bug mansions, a cornus walk, a human sundial and Carol has even converted an old mobile home into an exploratory classroom! Other PSTT projects with which Carol has been involved in include; developing ‘Growing Music’ with WOMAD and contributing to the Bath Spa TAPS assessment project. Carol is also a member of Association of Science Education (ASE) and is on the Editorial Board of Primary Science Magazine.

Carol received her Primary Science Teacher of The Year Award in 2012 - one of her proudest moments. Recently, Carol has been leading ‘Science Network’ meetings to support Wiltshire teachers - a role which she particularly enjoys as it is a great way to pass on the wonderful ideas gained through being part of PSTT. Carol is now an Area Mentor for the Wessex region and is really looking forward to supporting PSTT College Fellows in setting up science cluster groups across the region.

Carol says, “Being part of the Primary Science Teaching Trust has provided a wonderful opportunity to not only meet other teachers and experts from across the UK, but also to contribute ideas and keep abreast of current thinking in science.”With over 30 years’ primary experience of teaching Year 2 to Year 6 behind her, Carol has held the position of Science Leader in a number of schools across Wiltshire.
