Teacher / TA / Subject Leader – Science curriculum workshops for KS1, LKS2 and UKS2

Designed to improve the knowledge, understanding and skills of teachers, teaching assistants and subject leaders and enable highly productive practical science in the classroom.

Join us for a whistle stop tour through science at each key stage or part key stage.

Important questions will be explored, which are of relevance at each point across the key stages: What are the big science ideas children need to know and understand? How can I plan with assessment in mind? What outcomes should I look for? How should children use, apply and communicate their knowledge and understanding as they work scientifically? How does our science curriculum deliver for children in our classes and schools?

As ever, plenty of practical ideas and useful strategies will be included to take back, use and/or share with colleagues.
