"How can I bring this topic to life - what new resources are there?"

"What are the misconceptions children have about science - and what can I do to address these?"

"What are the tricky topics, and is there something different I can try with my class?"

"How can I meaningfully assess progress - what does it look like?"

This course will ensure you return to school with all of these answers, full of confidence about teaching science! You will explore ways of bringing the KS1 curriculum to life through practical ideas and discussion tasks. Carefully planned gap tasks have been designed to help you prepare for the year ahead and enable you to develop effective learning opportunities for the children in your class.  A range of carefully selected resources have been picked out ready to share with you - you certainly won't finish this empty handed... With a knowledgeable and enthusiastic facilitator with a passion for primary science, you are guaranteed to find this CPD invaluable.  Completion of this course will reward you with a certificate for your performance management.
