      Autumn Term 2022

      Newly Appointed Primary Science Coordinator Training 22-235 October 2022 or 28 February 2023

      Keyword Search: Science Coordinator

      Taking on the leadership of science can appear a daunting task for many new science coordinators, especially at a time when its place in the curriculum is under greater scrutiny.

      This one-day training session will help new coordinators gain a clear understanding of what science teaching and learning should be like and identify what they need to do to further develop the subject in their own school.

      Part of the cost of the training includes a half day visit from either Kevin Neil, County Inspector for Science, or Emma Cooper, General Inspector/Adviser for Science, to support your school’s specific challenges/developments.

      This course is offered in the Autumn and Spring terms.

      Planning for long-term studies of the local environment in science 2022-23 – 1 February or 6 February or 7 February or 8 February 2023

      Keyword Search: Planning Studies

      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 few 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 training will support Science Leaders in identifying and sequencing learning through long-term studies to further help children make excellent progress in science.
