Friday 2nd July 2021, 9.10 - 3.15pm (remote attendance via Zoom)

In what has been a disruptive time in education there hasnever been a more important time to find out about ways inwhich you can enhance the learning of young people. Whether exploring what a recovery curriculum might look like to making links between science, English and mathematics, our primary conferences always provide outstanding learning opportunities linked to topical developments in primary science teaching.

Through the planned sessions there will be the opportunity to:

  • Explore current good practice in primary science.explore current good practice in primary science.
  • Recognise your own good practice and identify areas fordevelopment
  • Reflect on ways to translate ideas to your school context andplan for action.
Take the opportunity to join a series of workshops

The new Ofsted framework now provides science leads and their schools with an exciting opportunity and the freedom to redesign and develop the school’s science curriculum around the needs of their pupils and the unique nature of their school and its community. During this session, we will look at how to start planning and incorporating a ‘local’ curriculum (building on the national and basic curriculum) with aspects that are especially relevant to your school while taking into account the challenges of its community and celebrating its strengths.

The STEM Ambassador Hub team will run an informative and interactive session based on how STEM Ambassadors can support enrichment and learning in the classroom. Primary aged children have already started to think about what they want to be when they grow up. Through the STEM Ambassador programme they can meet real life space scientists, aeroplane engineers, palaeontologists and many more. An excellent way to raise aspirations amongst your students.
