Getting out and about in the school grounds can be an excellent way to foster children’s curiosity about the world around them. Observing over time is a key aspect of ‘working scientifically’ which allows the children to practise and develop a wide range of disciplinary skills.

In KS1, such enquiries are an effective way of inspiring children to ask questions about the world around them and develop their sense of curiosity. And in KS2, observations from these kinds of enquiries often enable children to make predictions about how things might be, leading on to planning of further comparative tests and fair tests to find out more.

The past two years have not gone without their challenges. There is no better time than now to make sure the science curriculum for our children is the very best it can be. This half day training course will support Science Leaders in identifying and sequencing learning through long-term studies to further help children make excellent progress in science.
