This paper focuses on what and how primary science student teachers and their mentors learn from planning and reflecting together on each other’s science lessons for pupils aged 7 to 9. The student teachers had had training in scientific knowledge, but only brief experience of teaching. The mentors were well experienced in the pedagogy of teaching and mentoring, but did not feel confident about their science content knowledge and the teaching of science. During a four-week school practicum, two lessons of each of two student teachers and their two mentors were video recorded and later reflected on in a stimulated recall session. During their reflections, the student teachers and the mentors gave concrete examples of their development of subject matter knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, instructional knowledge and knowledge of pupils.
