It's British Science Week 2019 and a great reminder that science in the early years is one of the best ways to help children find answers to their many 'why' and 'how' questions.
In order to support children's curiosity and inquisitive minds, we, the adults must develop our own understanding of science and how things work.
Science and technology is an area that needs to be nurtured in our early years and foundation classrooms. Teachers often report that boys become more engaged when they are presented with challenging experiences, such as 'creating something that moves'. In order to do this the children must explore movement, and what makes things move.
