The new collaborative London Primary Science Conference has been scheduled for June. It's a jam-packed day of expert-led workshops for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 suitable for science subject leaders, teachers, ECT's and teaching assistants.

All workshops draw on principles of outstanding practice in subject leadership and effective classroom practice to engage pupils in science.  You can select sessions to match personal and school priorities.  There will be a range of science educational organisations represented, running workshops and exhibition stands, giving you the chance to discuss your needs. You will also have time to network with colleagues, share expertise and build your local network.

Following on from a jam packed day of CPD, you will hear from our speakers:

Maria Pack - Safety: Keeping science safe and much more; what CLEAPSS does for you

CLEAPSS are the people who ensure that you and your children are able to undertake the practical work that you want to do. They provide schools with advice about how to safely manage activities that you may otherwise avoid and inspiration for activities you never even thought of. During this keynote Maria Pack, Primary Consultant at CLEAPSS will explain what CLEAPSS does for you, and how to access their resources.

Dr Meghna Nag Chowdhuri: Primary Science Capital Teaching Approach: Building science engagement for social justice. @primaryscicap; @science_capital

Although many children enjoy school science, not all of them feel science is ‘for them’, especially those belonging to minoritized communities. This presentation showcases the Primary Science Capital Teaching Approach (PSCTA), developed by researchers from the IOE and King’s in partnership with teachers to support every child’s engagement and identification with science. The PSCTA is a reflective framework, which provides practical ideas about how to embed an equitable approach in everyday science teaching in primary schools. The framework will be presented alongside illustrative examples and insights/testimonials from participating teachers


We look forward to seeing you for what promises to be an exciting day.
