Approaches and Activities for Engaging Children with Key Ideas in Science
Patterson, Pauline
Primary Science, n140 p27-30 Nov 2015
The Cams Hill Science Consortium (CHSC) is a group of teachers based in Hampshire who have been meeting regularly over a number of years to share outcomes from their classroom-based research into engaging children more productively in science. Led by Matthew Newberry, formerly of Cams Hill School in Fareham, the consortium has developed and trialled a range of resources and approaches to enrich teaching and learning of science. In this article, the author shares a collection of their ideas on approaches and activities for teaching key ideas in the new English National Curriculum. Summaries of some of their insights and successes, giving examples of what has worked well in the primary classroom at all levels, are presented.
