ASE North and East Midlands Region and Education CPD+ jointly present:

ASE North and East Midlands Region hosts two talks for primary teachers, students, tutors and TAs! The New Primary Science Curriculum by Nicola Beverley and Richard III - A Cross Curricular outreach resource from the University of Leicester.

The New Primary Science Curriculum - what should it look like in the classroom?

Presenter: Nicola Beverley

What are the changes in the Primary curriculum?  How much will you have to change your practice? How can you use it to promote better science teaching across your primary school?  The main session by our popular and successful presenter will be authoritive, down to earth, and full of ideas that relate to the reality of the primary school. It will cover the impact of the new primary science curriculum and what it actually means for those of us teaching it. This session is suitable for everyone teaching in a primary school, not just science co-ordinators. Students, Teaching assistants, tutors and non members are welcome.

And also a brief introduction to

Richard III - A Cross Curricular outreach resource from Leicester University

Presenter: Charlotte Barratt 

The second session will showcase the cross curricular science and history workshop available at the University of Leicester. The presentation will demonstrate what is available for year 5 and 6 pupils, developed by the genetics and archaeology departments, related to the discovery and verification of the remains of Richard III in a Leicester car park. A good chance to include a local and topical issue into your school, as expected by OFSTED.
