Putting the WOW back into Science (Primary)
Primary school science often suffers from a lack of priority, with not enough time devoted to it when compared to the other core subjects. Good science teaching relies on provoking the natural curiosity of children. In many schools, there is a desire to raise the profile of science, amongst children, staff and parents. This might be via science events, science clubs or just through a change of approach within school.
Who is this programme for?
Primary Science Subject Leaders, Senior Leaders, Classroom Teachers and anyone with a keen interest in raising the profile of science in their school.
This fun course will leave you full of practical ideas to enrich primary science in your school. You will be inspired to enthuse your pupils about the thrill of science enquiry. It will provide information about science clubs, science weeks and involving outside speakers.
The following will be explored during the session:
- Generate ideas for science clubs or science weeks
- Ideas for a range of accessible science practical activities
- Access a range of local resources and organisations to support science events
- Sources of funding for running a science week
