Science provides a context through which play-based learning activities can develop children’s skills and knowledge and understanding of the world.

If we want to encourage our youngest children to make good observations in their science lessons, using all of their senses, we must first catch their attention.

This course is bursting with ideas and strategies to enliven your science, challenge very young learners and stimulate them into exploring the world around them. We will use games, songs, poems and drama activities that are guaranteed to enthuse young children.
The day will demonstrate a range of practical, enjoyable and age-appropriate activities that will help young pupils to look, to think and to talk about the science they experience.

Amongst a host of other things, we’ll rescue astronauts from giant hailstones, look at strange noses and race bubbles. So come along and join the fun!



You will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the value of purposeful play
  • Implement a range of ideas and activities to enhance children’s early science experiences
  • Extend your knowledge of a range of strategies to engage children with their immediate environment
