KEYNOTE ~ Prof Tara Shirazi ~ Kingston University
Strategies for science teachers to deepen their effectiveness in the classroom
Time is a precious commodity for teachers and most would argue that they never have enough time to reach every student therefore every second a teacher has with their students should be a meaningful and productive second. This keynote will bring together some strategies to maximise student learning time and minimise downtime.
Lyn Haynes What’s on the inside….
An opportunity to do some dissection work that can be used in a primary classroom (Don’t wear your favourite attire)
Philip O’Reilly Engaging pupils in science through global STEM challenges
The session focuses on Practical Action’s popular STEM challenges including the Squashed Tomato challenge, Plastics challenge, Beat the Flood and Stop the Spread which are designed to fit the curriculum but are flexible enough to be used in STEM clubs, for collapsed curriculum day and transition.
Naomi Jordan Time poor science rich with low ability mainstream classes
Low ability classes within mainstream schools can present their own set of challenges to time-poor teachers. This session will run through some different strategies to help students access the science curriculum without significantly increasing the teacher workload within the teaching week.
Hellen Ward How to link reading and science: A practical workshop
In this workshop, you will try some fun and effective activities, which develop scientific learning but also impact on reading aptitude. Six activities, which have been used across the primary science curriculum, will be presented with examples from a range of ages.
Jakob Werdelin, Mastering Scientific Concepts & Vocabulary through Cooperative Learning
Cooperative Learning combines drilling, language acquisition, thinking skills, real-time assessment, and more.
Ronan McDonald A Core physics practicals: Equipment and experiments that work!
An opportunity to do some physics practical’s with expert support on hand, mainly A-level but invaluable for all teachers of physics
