This course will examine how science can be used as the context for developing writing and reading skills.

Recount, explanatory texts, non fictional writing and reading will form a central part of the course as well as how science can enable quality persuasive writing.

Science topics will include materials, habitats, environments, evolution, chemical change, light, sound and forces.

In addition there will be opportunities to develop your own directed science activities related to texts which have proved successful with reluctant boy readers.


 This is suitable for anyone interested in improving literacy across the curriculum.


You will be able to:

  • gain an awareness of the nature and breadth of opportunities for linking science and literacy
  • develop strategies for raising attainment in science through developing speaking, listening and writing skills to communicate scientific learning
  • begin to identify progression in science and literacy
