Resource development RP151
With the changes to the new primary science curriculum taking effect in September 2014 many schools are now looking ahead at developing materials to help them teach the new ideas and concepts. To support you through this process, we have devised a programme for you to work with expert consultants and colleagues from other schools to develop materials.
The project is being led by Rosemary Feasey and Carol Davenport, who have already been working to develop some resources. These include materials to support the new content at KS1-2 and also assessment. Attending the workshops will provide access to these materials. During the workshops, these resources will be developed further. This is where teachers taking part in the workshops will add their own ideas as well as trialling and adapting these for use in their schools.
From the workshops, we will collate all of the resources from every participant and then distribute them to each of the schools that have taken part. As part of the process, each of the resources produced are peer-reviewed and go through further quality assurance. The finished product will be extremely valuable for supporting science across your school.
Each workshop will be 2 half days and aimed at either KS1 or 2. This will help teachers of a particular key stage work with colleagues from the same key stage.
