Working Scientifically in the Primary Classroom
This booklet has been produced to help teachers understand how to ‘work scientifically’ within the primary science curriculum for England. It includes progression of enquiry skills grids from Early Years Foundation Stage through to Key Stage Three and child friendly self and peer assessment posters to support all aspects of science enquiry. Each page contains a summary of information intended to enable teachers to:
*Plan science lessons during which children can show progress in their learning
*Ensure continuity and progression of essential enquiry skills
*Differentiate activities and add challenge for more able children
*Make accurate assessments, and facilitate high quality peer and self-assessments.
