dramatic science


The Dramatic Science approach provides a first hand opportunity for children to engage directly with scientific processes and concepts. It facilitates enactment and exploration in various ways to examine appropriate scientific objects, ideas and perspectives. It encourages the development of curiosity and confidence in acting and talking about science at KS 1 & 2 and appears to support the development of scientific understanding. It is hoped that the enjoyable and useful ways that children are introduced to science will lay foundations not easily eroded, and help impede the declining interest in science at the end of KS2.
