Primary Science – The Role of Talk

Ideas on how to encouage discussion in KS2 science lessons In a practical and group discussion-based science lesson with a class of KS2 pupils, Nicky Waller demonstrates a lesson inspired by the Children Challenge Industry Project, which creates liaisons with local science-based manufacturing companies, enabling pupils to see how the science they learn at school is used in a ‘real life’ context.

Nicky gives key tips on how to organise the classroom and optimise the groups for small group discussion work. Award-winning science teacher Linda James shows how she encourages her pupils to analyse and critically debate when her class become science reporters in a lesson that draws on everyday news stories.
