Understanding how children view the world is critical if we want them to develop into critical thinkers. By exploring how cognitive and metacognitive ideas can help us understand children’s thinking we can provide them with opportunities to develop their powers of reasoning.

This course will help you understand the activities that you can include across Key Stages 1 and 2 to develop scientific thinking in all pupils.

Who is the course leader?


This day will:


  • Develop your understanding of how you can underpin your teaching with cognitive and metacognitive strategies,
  • Provide you with a range of practical activities that can be incorporated and applied to any science classroom,
  • Involve a group observation of a KS 2 science lesson,
  • Help you understand the key elements that should be included in any curriculum that seeks to develop children that truly can work scientifically.
