    The group is for any science teacher with at least two years teaching experience that lives or works in or close to Hampshire. They must have demonstrated that they are consistently excellent science teachers, hardworking, innovative, open to risk taking and keen to reflect and improve upon their practice analytically and critically.

    New course for the summer term: Planning for Long-Term Studies of the Local Environment in Science – 17 or 18 or 24 or 25 May 2022 depending on location

    by Cormac Wilton -

    Getting out and about in the school grounds can be an excellent way to foster children’s curiosity about the world around them. Observing over time is a key aspect of ‘working scientifically’ which allows the children to practise and develop a wide range of disciplinary skills.

    In KS1, such enquiries are an effective way of inspiring children to ask questions about the world around them and develop their sense of curiosity. And in KS2, observations from these kinds of enquiries often enable children to make predictions about how things might be, leading on to planning of further comparative tests and fair tests to find out more.

    The past two years have not gone without their challenges. There is no better time than now to make sure the science curriculum for our children is the very best it can be. This half day training course will support Science Leaders in identifying and sequencing learning through long-term studies to further help children make excellent progress in science.
