The half day (afternoon) comprises of light-touch theory and hands-on practical activities to engage EYFS pupils in scientific problem solving and developing strategies for questioning, as described in 4.5 Characteristics of effective learning.

Some feedback from previous sessions:

“What a fantastic course I have gained lots of practical ideas to take back into the classroom. Thank you”

“It was planned well and it was great to try out the activities that we were given suggestions for. It was really good that there were practical elements to the course rather than just listening to the information.”

“Really good balance and knowledgeable trainer. Specific to EYFS learning and highlighted potential for simply including science in provision. Also how much we already do, particularly with questioning. Setting up a 'curiosity corner’ for the children that will encompass estimating and the activity cards. Also parent partnership ideas were great and feedback to science lead who is keen to make this a focus.”
