Science leader termly update training

Purpose: To understand best practice in primary science teaching, how to use the National Curriculum to teach inspiring science lessons and to understand what Ofsted expects to see in primary school science lessons.

With Ofsted’s sharp focus on the broader curriculum, schools must ensure their curriculum is fit for purpose. These sessions will enable your school to meet and
surpass all of Ofsted’s requirements (see slide). Each session will explore activities and aspects of science identified as important by the national agenda as well as those requested by subject leaders.

Typically, sessions will address:
• Increasing progress in children’s scientific knowledge and understanding
• Developing children’s skills of working scientifically and their critical thinking
• Creating practical science lessons that excite and engage children and are easy to resource
• Using different types of scientific enquiry to answer questions, including children’s questions
• Identifying the science in real-life contexts
• Teaching the tricky science concepts
• Deepening children's learning in science so they can demonstrate mastery
• Using problem solving to enable children to apply their scientific knowledge and understanding
• Providing the opportunity for delegates to share best practice
• Recent developments in science teaching
Update sessions are no longer an add on, they are an essential part of school and subject leader
development to ensure children receive the best education possible.
