Extremely helpful to see an investigation in progress. The focus and ideas on how the children make choices will enable me to plan this into my lessons. I've also picked up on many recommendations, in particular to focus on one investigation a term but in detail. Thank you.

A good lesson plan for a sound investigation. It comes with a very good video explaining about primary science and how best to approach it. Very good for an NQT or a teacher who lacks confidence in Science teaching.
