We have just had an ofsted in science. Before I was observed another member of staff was told by the inspector that he was looking for independent learning. I had planned an investigation for the chn to carry out but it was very teacher led as the chn are in y3 and what the chn need at the moment due to a new topic. I knew that this was not what the inspector was looking for but he came back after the first obs for a second time. It was during this time that as I was rounding up we went over some of the questions that had been raised during the lesson and I said we would investigate those next week. I have now been informed that this WAS what the inspector had wanted to hear and he has suggested that as we have no coord in our school, that I would be a good candidate. So I have been offered it. However I need to know if anyone else has any experience of children being more independent in science and a starting point for me if I was to take this on in our school.
