Anne Goldsworthy talks about teaching skills in science at KS2-KS3.
During the past academic year exciting developments have taken place in Wales in secondary schools and their feeder primary schools. They have had excellent CPD and have been given a range of resources to use in the classroom. The work was funded by the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT) which aims to improve the education of children and young people in Science. Anne Goldsworthy who led the CPD will outline some of the good practice that was developed with the teachers and present some useful ideas on teaching skills in science as children move from KS2 to KS3.
with Gopher Science Laboratory workshop
Following the presentation there will be an opportunity for teachers to participate in the Gopher Science Laboratory workshop. The Gopher Science Laboratory has been developed by the Society of Biology with the aid of a National Science Academy Grant and offers 10 short practical activities for KS2/3 pupils. All schools present at the practical session will be able to take a box of resources worth £60 including a bilingual booklet with them from the workshop.
The meeting is an informal and dynamic way of exploring a topic and is all about teachers getting together to share ideas. It is suitable for both primary and secondary teachers.
