CPD Sessions:

Spotlight on EYFS/KS1 - You will find out about ideas for practical science that can be used with young children to develop a range of scientific skills, and explore the opportunities these activities offer to promote children's social skills as they work in small groups.

Spotlight on Lower KS2 - Pupils in Years 3 and 4 should be given a range of scientific experiences to enable them to raise their own questions about the world around them.  You will develop your approaches to planning and teaching primary science in lower KS2 and explore ways to bring the curriculum to life through practical ideas and discussion tasks. You will gain confidence in planning a progressive and engaging lower Key Stage 2 curriculum.

Spotlight on Upper KS2 - If you teach Year 5 or 6, this course will give you the know-how to plan a successful curriculum, help you feel more confident in your science knowledge, and teach you how to get those outstanding results, whilst meeting the needs of each pupil and your school. You will explore ways of bringing the upper KS2 curriculum to life through practical lessons.

Embedding Maths in Science - During this session, you will identify how to maximise your pupils' opportunities to develop their numeracy skills, and improve attainment in science, by planning lessons in which children have opportunities to measure accurately and effectively handle data.

The importance of thinking and talking for disadvantaged pupils - This course is based upon the highly successful 'Thinking, Doing, Talking Science' project from Oxford. It also supports the development of subject knowledge including the building up scientific vocabulary. Learn how to embed a range of strategies across different areas of the primary science curriculum and lead this approach throughout your school.
