Subject Leader Updates – 18th Nov 2021

How do we use meaningful assessments – digging deeper

During this session we will look at what we mean by assessment in science and how to make it meaningful and accurate. We will look at ways to support the long term recall of learning in science and how we link this to our assessment of children, particularly at the end of each Key Stage.

By the end of this session you will:

  • recap and refresh yourself with assessment standards at the end of key stages.
  • share assessment strategies that have been used successfully in school.
  • be able to make confident assessments; particularly in working scientifically.

By the end of this session you will:

  • recap and refresh yourself with the working scientifically part of the science curriculum.
  • have opportunity to share ideas and thoughts on experiences in the classroom.

Subject Leader Updates – 16th June 2022

 The curriculum and creating a clear progression path

Whether you have an embedded curriculum or one that is a work in progress, in this meeting we will explore what it means to have a clear progression path across your curriculum. We will also share existing curriculums and provide peer support to continue building and shaping your curriculum.

By the end of this session you will:

  • have a clear understanding of what progression looks like in science over the whole school.
  • identify next steps for your own school's curriculum.
  • build a clear picture of how to progress in Working Scientifically across the curriculum.

£75 each or if you attend all three we have teacher release funding available which will mean that your school will be invoiced for £225 and then on completion receive back £150 which would make all 3 sessions Only £75  please contact if you would like to attend all three.
