Writing science LIMITED
Limited Capacity filling up

For primary aged children to write with a scientific voice, they need to understand the science subject matter that they wish to write about and the language demands of writing like a scientist. In this workshop we will use a range of strategies (including vocabulary, talk and drama) to support children's understanding of the complex requirements of scientific writing. The approach has been used in a range of schools to achieve outstanding results in both scientific understanding and writing.
