Primary Courses

Autumn Term

We are holding a face to face Working Scientifically course on November.  

Understanding ‘working scientifically’ is vital for children to develop ideas, skills, knowledge and understanding in science. You will be able to confidently implement strategies for planning, resourcing and organising enquiry that challenges scientific thinking.

Core Twilights

Linking Science & English

You will explore a range of strategies designed to improve children’s ability to use scientific language. You will be able to maximise the opportunities for developing and applying literacy skills whilst improving attainment in science by planning lessons in which children communicate science ideas, knowledge and understanding. We will look at a range of fiction and non-fiction opportunities.

Linking Science & Maths

Collecting analysing and presenting data in science requires and provides opportunity for the use and development of mathematical skills. Throughout this course, you will identify how to maximise your pupil’s opportunities to develop their numeracy skills, measuring and statistical maths (data handling) and improve attainment in science by planning lessons in which children have the opportunity to apply their mathematical skills in a practical environment.

Science Capital or Working Scientifically

Science Capital - An opportunity to look at all that we can do within our classrooms to promote and support the ideas and strategies behind the Science Capital approach and also what resources are available to support us with this.

Working Scientifically - An opportunity to implement strategies for enquiry in order to improve children's outcomes through effective teaching of scientific enquiry and to explore a range of techniques to draw out pupil ideas and develop strategies to inspire and incorporate these ideas into your science lessons.

Subject Knowledge Twilights

EYFS

Increase your confidence in using a range of approaches and strategies to meet children's needs in Early Years as we start the journey on the new requirements.

Upper Key Stage 2

This is an opportunity to focus on the big ideas in primary science, helping you make a difference to children’s learning by identifying and challenging misconceptions. It will give you a chance to get to grips with all the opportunities both for understanding the UKS2 concepts whilst at the same time experiencing a wide range of practical approaches to develop this in your classroom. For example the tricky to teach areas such as evolution and gears, levers and pulleys.

Key Stage 1

This is an opportunity to explore practical science that can be used with young children to develop a range of scientific skills whilst at the same time creating a purpose for learning in a real world context or using a range of books suitable for KS1, which you could link your practical investigations to.

Lower Key Stage 2

This is an opportunity to focus on the big ideas in primary science, helping you make a difference to children’s learning by identifying and challenging misconceptions whilst at the same time creating an opportunity for a wide range of practical approaches to develop this further in your classroom.
