AKSIS INSET: making an impact in scientific enquiry

This prestigious cross-phase collaboration between teachers, ASE, and researchers at Kings College London is influencing ongoing developments in the National Curriculum and National Strategies. Teachers are enthusiastic about the impact of the ideas and activities in these books for their professional development and tutors also find them very useful for initial education courses.

The strategy is to analyse samples of pupil work in detail, identify strengths and weaknesses, tailor a CPD course, deliver the CPD in school introducing appropriate AKSIS material and other resources, and analyse subsequent samples of pupil work.

The pack provides examples of pupils’ work in scientific investigations with a commentary about the work and an indication of National Curriculum levels.
