Working Scientifically, inside and outside the classroom
DateTue, 1st November, 2016
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationLionwood Junior School, Norwich
‘Working Scientifically’ is at the heart of the new 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 that will be shared, emphasising practical activity and purposeful investigation opportunities both inside – and outside – the classroom, in contexts where children might explore, enquire and grow to understand more about the world around them.
