Example text

Something of the spirit of 'science in everyday life', 'appreciating the nature of science' and 'appreciating the cultural significance of science' is contained in the National Curriculum, even at primary level. It is hoped that the involvement in finding out about the natural world, through talk, listening, reading and experimenting will allow these understandings to develop. The National Curriculum stresses the importance of children learning the vocabulary associated with science and the means of representing and displaying data and information, using diagrams, graphs, tables and charts in order to communicate their ideas.

How do they imagine light? What do they imagine that it does and where it is? How do they explain phenomena like how they hear the sound of a drum, the growth of a plant from a seed, the drying of a towel, the positions of organs inside the body... Research on Children's Learning in Science began in the late 1960s, and flourished in the 1970s and early 1980s. CLIS was the acronym for the project at Leeds, but there has been work in this field worldwide. It has provided a wealth of information about what children say about a wide range of natural phenomena, what they expect to happen, how they explain natural events, and their interpretation of what people say or write about science.

Jelly 1985: 47) Jos Elstgeest has written extensively on the importance of 'encounters' between children and phenomena (Elstgeest 1985a, 1992, Elstgeest and Harlen 1990) in enhancing their ability to ask questions, and much of his writing is about the sort of encounters that intrigue and puzzle and hence encourage the asking of questions. Elstgeest also gives an important reminder that questions may not come in the verbalized form recognized by adults as questions; someone picking up an object and looking at it in an interested way is a form of question; someone pausing and frowning may indicate that some sort of puzzle has occurred to them; a statement said in a tentative voice may be a question.
