Engaging science in KS2

This course will enable you to plan and embed a progressive and engaging curriculum to meet the needs of the children. You will reinforce your own subject knowledge and learn how to tackle children’s common misconceptions.

These module will help you to:

  • Identify practical approaches to teaching subject specific content in Key Stage 2 science.
  • Describe how Key Stage 2 science fits within the primary curriculum.

Developing Pupil-led Investigations

To develop the independence of children thinking and communicating as real scientists is essential to deepen their scientific understanding. You will be able to facilitate and create rich, effective and exciting strategies that provide opportunities that embed and extend scientific skills.

These module will help you to:

  • Demonstrate a clear understanding of how to structure and facilitate pupil led investigations
  • Evaluate and implement numerous strategies that will engage children in their own learning
  • Embed different strategies to support the ability of children to communicate scientific ideas and challenge ideas as true scientists

Linking STEM Careers in the Primary Science Curriculum

Using everyday contexts in primary science helps to make science more recognisable and accessible. It is a route to enable children to engage with abstract and challenging ideas. The sessions will be structured to support teachers to plan a curriculum that meets the needs of the children in their school whilst developing their individual science capital.

This course will take place over the 5th May and 23rd June 2021 (both sessions will run from 12:30 - 16:00). More information about individual module content coming soon...
