Space and astronomy- a context to teach science from year 1 to year 6 NY017
Get support in planning inspirational science lessons across all year groups, using the Earth and Space element of the National Curriculum.
As well as covering the Earth and Space element of the National Curriculum, this course will support you in planning inspirational science lessons across all year groups. With a focus on planning innovative and engaging lessons you will develop children’s independence when carrying out, recording and analysing scientific investigations. There will also be ideas for planning a successful ‘space camp’ in your school.
Opportunities for working scientifically include testing ‘Martian’ soil for signs of life; find out how your school can have access to real moon rock samples and weather permitting, get expert guidance in viewing the night sky at the university’s sky lab. There will also be lots of opportunities to plan meaningful cross curricular links which will enrich science, maths, English and DT lessons.
This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
Course fees vary for participants outside the UK. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
You will be able to:
- develop your own subject knowledge of space and astronomy
- use and recognise effective models to teach abstract concepts about space
- plan inspirational scientific enquiry lessons within the context of space exploration
