...And Then We'll Write about It
Wright, Lynne
Primary Science Review, n84 p4-5 Sep-Oct 2004
The author shares her personal view about when it is useful for children to record their work in science, what helps their learning, and what switches them off, describing some fairly common scenarios. In her role as an Ofsted inspector, the author is privileged to observe, talk to, and learn from dedicated, inspirational, and gifted teachers who share a joy of science with their pupils and help them to become successful learners. Children's success in recording science depends on many things, including their ability to observe carefully, draw recognisable objects, organise themselves to carry out practical work, and their level of literacy and numeracy skills, as well as effective teaching in science lessons. If children are to develop as young scientists it is vital that they are given many opportunities to use different ways of recording their learning, and an understanding of how these interrelate with one another.
