‘How to become a Scientist’
At Leadenham CE Primary School, our aim is to develop children’s natural curiosity through practical, engaging and real life scenarios within science. We begin science by giving the children a real-life stimulus to inspire them to talk and ask questions, whilst immersing them in the important scientific knowledge and skills. The children are actively involved through scientific enquiry and we work with the children’s curiosity to help plan exciting experiments and investigations.
The children are taught scientific skills which are embedded through investigations. They are encouraged to ask questions, predict, work collaboratively, measure, record, interpret their results and evaluate scientific evidence whilst being completely engrossed in hands on, practical and exciting experiments.
From the initial stimulus, the children embark upon a scientific journey using the TASC wheel, which allows the children to become Scientists!
