Developing young scientists bundle - part 1 & 2
The Developing Young Scientists bundle includes both parts 1 and 2 and additional audit tools which support schools in evaluating and improving enquiries and recording in science.
Part 1 ‘Developing young scientists - a guide to child-led enquiry’ outlines what is meant by child-led enquiry and contains 24 activities which support teachers with the experience, wonder, plan and investigate stages of the enquiry cycle.
This practical resource includes:

- 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.
Part 2 ‘Developing young scientists - a guide to supporting children in reviewing, reporting and writing in science’ focuses on what comes after this and supporting children to review and explain what they have found out.
This invaluable resource includes:
- a commentary about the strength of focussed recording
- detailed guidance for supporting children with drawing conclusions and evaluating
- creative ideas for linking science with English
- examples of children’s work with commentary about the skills and understanding they are demonstrating.
The bundle includes free audit tools which support schools in evaluating and improving enquiries and recording in science.
