Upcoming Networks

Primary Science Subject Leader’s Network

Many Primary Science Leaders and teachers are confident with teaching and learning both the subject knowledge and working scientifically aspects of science; with the release of the new research on Science Capital for primary schools, rather than the previously released research and information based on secondary pupils, now is the time to look at how, in the already crammed primary timetable, we can tweak our lessons to support opportunities for science capital.

At the next Science subject leader network we will :

  • Discuss what Science Capital means for primary education
  • Consider how to include Science Capital in the curriculum
  • Look at resources available in order to update school provision for Science Capital.

As well as the normal updates with regards to resources, grants , new initiatives etc.
