Teach Primary: “CREST resources bring fresh creativity into your science class.”

Teach Primary: “CREST resources bring fresh creativity into your science class.”

Teach Primary Magazine has published a fantastic article on CREST Awards and resources. This insightful piece highlights CREST’s pupil-centred approach which encourages students to ‘be a scientist’ via investigation and exploration.

“All too often it seems necessary to focus on facts and correct answers in science, especially for teachers who might feel less confident in their own subject knowledge. How can we encourage creativity in the primary science classroom?

One solution is to change the roles to teacher as facilitator and pupil as investigator. The CREST enquiry-based learning framework uses this method to support pupils to develop their creativity and gets them sharing their own ideas in the science classroom.

Each challenge begins with a real-life scenario and a problem to solve. Pupils work in groups with an activity card which helps them to think through the problem, plan an investigation and experiment to find a solution.”
