Park Hill School
‘Working Scientifically’ is at the heart of the primary science national curriculum. With an emphasis on children identifying their own enquiry questions to investigate, the methods and skills they will need to learn, use and apply as they seek to answer them; it’s all about creating children that can ‘work scientifically’ and truly ‘be’ scientists!
This course will provide teachers and subject leaders with the chance to improve their own subject knowledge, so that they can confidently enthuse, motivate and challenge the children they work with. Practical ideas a-plenty will be shared, emphasising hands-on activity and purposeful investigation opportunities both inside – and outside – the classroom, in contexts where children can explore, enquire and grow to understand more about the world around them.
- To improve teacher subject knowledge of working scientifically in the National Curriculum
- To provide relevant examples that might inspire and develop existing classroom practice
Course tutor: Nicola Beverley
