Working Scientifically should be positioned at the heart of the primary science curriculum in all schools. Children must learn National Curriculum content as they work scientifically; through exploring and investigating, asking questions and problem solving, engaging with and learning about the ‘Wonder-full’ world around them.
This course will provide subject leaders and teachers with:
• a greater understanding of Working Scientifically and its significance to learning in science
• enhanced subject knowledge and understanding of the five types of enquiry children should be using, progression of these and of key skills from Early Years and through primary
• lots of hands-on, practical examples and teaching strategies that might be shared with colleagues through INSET (and tried out in own classrooms)
