Thinking, doing and talking science RH198 / K30
We are delighted to welcome Helen Wilson to share a wealth of evidence-based strategies and resources from the recent Education Endowment Foundation funded projects, ‘Thinking, Doing, Talking Science’.
The strategies and resources are particularly suited for Key Stage 2-3 transition and focus on the encouragement of pupils’ higher order thinking.
This will include the development of a dedicated discussion slot in science – the ‘Bright Ideas Time’ – and practical science for challenge.
