Keep your primary school students inspired by science whilst learning at home

Primary school science teaching often involves sparking students’ imagination through practical activities.

With some classes being taught online or remotely during the coronavirus pandemic, primary science teachers must learn innovative new ways of teaching young students science using online and offline learning.

On this course, you’ll consider the new learning environment of your pupils, the role of parents in your teaching, and discover new science activities your pupils can do from home.

You’ll explore a variety of asynchronous teaching and learning tools, and explore these new challenges with colleagues.

This course is designed for primary teachers of pupils aged 5-11 years, who are supporting parents and pupils with learning from home due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Science and STEM subject leaders and heads of primary schools may also find this course useful for devising their approach to home teaching and online learning.
