Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths: STEM activities encourage children to ask questions, make predictions, think creatively, test ideas, be analytical and find answers.

They are also fun and exciting! Why not try some at home and bring them into school for sharing assembly? We would love to share your explorations and investigations.

The 5 Types of Scientific Enquiry:

At the Wolds and Vale Federation each science lesson across KS1 and KS2 includes at least one of these 5 types of enquiry. Understanding the World activities in the Early Years includes elements of these where appropropriate. Children are supported to use their investigative skills in a variety of ways in order to raise their own questions, collect data and information and draw conclusions. This is developed through practical activities and collaborative working and discussion.

KS1 children use the working wall at the beginning of lessons to identify which of the 5 types of enquiry they will be using.

Lower KS2 children are supported and encouraged to indentify for themselves which of the 5 types of enquiry is being utilised whereas in upper KS2 children are supported to explain why a particular type of enquiry is used and how it will benefit their investigation.
