Hi I’m Bryony…
Mum, wife, teacher, author, primary science geek and tweeter (I go by @PriSciGeeks over on Twitter).
A proud Herefordshire girl who’s made Yorkshire my home. There’s nothing I love more than travelling around the region visiting schools, meeting young people and their inspiring teachers and sampling the delights of our local larder and host of amazing restaurants and Air BnBs in new places.
I studied Primary Education at Leeds Becket University, before beginning my teaching career in Garforth on the outskirts of Leeds in 2000.
I love teaching as much as I love science and have been developing high quality professional learning resources for leaders, classroom practitioners, trainees and Early Career Teachers for the past 17+ years.
Paul and I have worked together on several projects in the past including writing our book ‘100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: Science’ for Bloomsbury. We loved the experience and starting our own company to share our passion was a natural next step as friends and now business partners!
I’ve been an active member of the Association of Science Education (ASE) for 10 years and am a proud fellow of the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT). I am a Chartered Science Teacher (CSciTeach) and have a STEM CPD Mark and I’m incredibly proud to be the Senior Regional Hub Leader for the Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) for Yorkshire and Humber. I currently hold several other roles, including work as a freelance primary science consultant.
A career highlight is being part of the author team for the highly successful SNAP science from Collins and the Astro Science Challenge, a Tim Peake Primary Project – I even got to meet the astronaut himself! I always knew new science opened up incredible opportunities.
I’m passionate about all things primary science, especially inspiring educators and children to make science engaging, hands on and meaningful, so developing My Science Club is an incredibly exciting and natural next step.
