Supplement: Working scientifically with enquiry

Issue: May 2014 133

Author: A special 8 page supplement download.

Extract: Science Enquiry, now Working Scientifically, is the continuous area of study in the National Curriculum for Science in England. It is the lifeblood of each and every area of subject matter and is what gives life and sustenance to learning new knowledge and developing understanding. As we see the shift from fair testing to other types of enquiry, we should consciously work to champion and make evident how working scientifically can breathe fresh life into subject learning. But what might this look like in school? A few like-minded people have helped us tell this story by contributing to a collection of ideas that should not only give you a few thoughts for a cross-curricular approach, but also help to clarify the different types of enquiry.
