Children learnt best when they could see how the Science they were studying linked to real world experiences, revealed more about the ‘big ideas’ in Science, and connected with and supported their learning of subjects, Including English and Mathematics.

 Learning in this fashion engages and enthuses pupils, develops their natural curiosity, and motivates them to find out more.”
