Providing children with reasons to think and talk scientifically can ensure children achieve deeper knowledge and understanding in science.  During this day course teachers and subject leaders will experience a variety of teaching and learning strategies that work brilliantly in science, allowing children to learn, practise and utilise quality vocabulary as they think then talk scientifically.  The importance of progression, building from EYFS, through KS1, KS2 and beyond, will be considered and strategies shared that promote effective teacher-questioning to explore and extend talking, thinking and learning at every stage.

Free and fabulous resources and web-based offers will be suggested that enrich the science curriculum, requiring classroom-based science to be applied and extended into real-world contexts, challenging children to use their knowledge and understanding more creatively, as they solve problems, explore ideas and answer questions.
