  • a discussion on how to move from teacher-led to more child-led enquiry in both KS1 and KS2
  • top tips for enhancing child-led enquiry in the classroom
  • 24 simple and engaging activities to spark children’s interest, get them asking questions and acting like independent scientists
  • a comprehensive list of working scientifically criteria linked to the activities
