This programme observes a science lesson from the point of view of a Year 2 child at St Mary's Primary School in Harborne, Birmingham named Scarlet.
Year 2 teacher Veronica Knight starts the "plants and the parts we can eat" lesson by introducing the learning objective. From this point on we follow Scarlet as she takes part in two activities: making a salad from various parts of plants, and sorting a variety of fruit and vegetables into categories decided by the teacher.
By following Scarlet the programme is able to observe how she learns, seeing what parts of the activities she finds fascinating, and also looks at where she does and doesn't interact.
Teachers have to find the key to help each child learn in his or her own way. This programme gives an insight into how one child made sense of a science lesson.
