Maija Flinkman, deputy head and teacher of biology and geography at a secondary school in Finland, visits a south London girls' state comprehensive school to teach science.
She's going to spend a week at the school, teaching a busy timetable of science across different year groups and abilities, using resources and lesson plans provided by the school.
Finland is top of the league table in science teaching, whereas England has slumped to 14th place. Will Maija's week in south London provide any insight into why Finland's approach to learning is more successful than England's?
