1 Day
The LookOut Discovery Centre, Hyde Park, London W2 2UH View on Google Map


Calling all heads of science, KS2 and KS3 teachers. In collaboration with The Royal Parks, this conference will explore the differences between KS2 and 3 and bridging the gap to help effective learning for transitioning students. The day will provide an opportunity to work closely with other teachers to scrutinise schemes of work, as well as focusing on deepening students’ scientific literacy. Tutors from The Royal Parks will provide interactive sessions to explore outdoor learning across KS2 and 3. By working across key stages, you will leave with a personalised transition curriculum that not only enhances science learning but creates a foundation from which to develop the scientists of the future.
