Have you ever sat in a science classroom as either a pupil or an observer and been bored? John has, but it should never have happened. Science can be the most absorbing, engaging, gross, fascinating, smelly, exciting, practical, electrifying, challenging and explosive subject in the curriculum. No other subject can - literally - make your hair stand on end!

John draws on his years of experience as a science learner, teacher and trainer to reveal the habits and mindsets of great science learners and teachers - and shows how these mindsets and habits can be taught. He gives clear guidance (referenced to Ofsted advice on outstanding practice) on engaging starters, success criteria, motivational lesson activities, effective plenaries and powerful feedback which will show that crucial progress over time.

This book really will make your lessons go with a bang!

For all primary and secondary science teachers. Essential reading whether you are a trainee teacher, newly qualified or more experienced and looking for fresh ideas. The Perfect (Ofsted) Science Lesson shows you how to: hook pupils into learning, deliver consistently engaging lessons, get more from your curriculum time, establish routines and good learning habits, keep motivation and attainment levels high, make your practicals more productive, use feedback effectively, re-invigorate your practice, and deliver consistently outstanding lessons.


John Beasley had a highly successful 25 year teaching career as a head of science and later as a deputy head teacher in a school in challenging circumstances, helping to quickly turn it around. More recently, he has worked as a University PGCE tutor, teacher trainer and science advisor in several schools. Together with his wife, Jackie Beere OBE, he now works as a consultant and trainer in primary and secondary schools, delivering training on subjects such as The Perfect (Ofsted) Lesson, Coaching for Success and Growth Mindset. John edited Jackie's book, The Perfect Teacher and has contributed to other books in the 'Perfect' series. This, together with his previous teaching and training experience, led to him writing The Perfect (Ofsted) Science Lesson.
