Five Types of Enquiry
This workshop will explore 'working scientifically' skills outlined in the National Curriculum through the five types of enquiry children can learn through. It focuses on engaging children in science learning by inspiring awe and wonder and igniting
curiosity. The afternoon will involve lots of practical ideas to inject scientific enquiry into the classroom, whether this learning is linked to scientific knowledge mentioned in the curriculum or not. Delegates will go home with a firm understanding of 'working
scientifically' skills; the five types of enquiry; and a range of practical investigations to take back to their classroom.

Enquiry when it's not so obvious!
There are some science topics where enquiry fits like a glove, and some where it takes a bit more unpicking to find the most relevant and engaging ways to explore them practically. This workshop will provide delegates with practical ideas for the trickiest
of topics and will develop further the 'working scientifically' and enquiry skills covered in 'Five Types of Enquiry' workshop. Covering topics from EYFS to Y6, you will go away with enquiry ideas to arm all of your teachers!

Resources and Links
There are all sorts of resources out there to help make primary science relevant and engaging. This workshop will provide delegates with a whole host of resources and links they can then use back in their classrooms. We'll explore the use of literature
alongside science; tried and tested theme-based lessons linking children's learning to real events; and bring in some outside agencies who can talk about how they can work with schools, allowing everybody to go home with a list of great contacts for their
science learning in and out of school.
