‘How to become a scientist’
At Lime Tree our aim is to develop children’s natural curiosity through practical, engaging and real life scenarios within science. We begin science by giving the children a real life stimulus to get them talking and asking questions, whilst immersing them in the important scientific knowledge and skills. The children are actively involved through scientific enquiry and we go with the children’s curiosity to help plan exciting experiments and investigations.
From the initial stimulus, the children embark upon a scientific journey using the TASC wheel, which allows the children to become scientists!
The children are taught scientific skills which are embedded through investigations. They are encouraged to ask questions, predict, work collaboratively, measure, record, interpret their results and evaluate scientific evidence whilst being completely engrossed in hands on, practical and exciting experiments.
