Considering Curriculum: Ensuring ‘hands-on’ and ‘minds-on’ Science Learning

RK198 B48

Using research and guidance from a variety of sources including Ofsted, DfE and the ‘10 key issues in primary science’ (available at SEERIH Innovations (seerih-innovations.org)) this course will provide subject leaders and senior leaders with the opportunity to consider and review their curriculum for science within a wider context.

The Ofsted emphasis on types of knowledge, building learning, ensuring progression and remembering that ‘minds-on’ rather than merely ‘hands on’, fun science is crucial, will be explored and the implications for curriculum review and development considered.

We are living in post-Covid times so the DfE guidance for ‘Teaching a broad and balanced curriculum for recovery’ will also be referenced, together with any further relevant updates and documentation.

This course will be responsive to the current climate in primary science education, drawing from and reflecting on what’s being said and suggested, to offer pragmatic and practical ideas and possible solutions, with due consideration to the needs of schools and Subject Leaders.
