Overview

Help your pupils love and understand the amazing world of science

Primary school science is the first opportunity to develop your pupils’ curiosity about the world. Studies suggest that by promoting science for kids and engaging pupils in practical science work frequently, they will have a greater understanding and enjoyment of science.

On this course, you will develop your confidence in doing practical science experiments in the primary classroom.

You will explore a range of practical science techniques, including the best science experiments for kids, and think about the impact your teaching strategies have upon the learning of your pupils.

This course is for primary school teachers who are new to teaching or would like to develop their skills in science teaching.

There will be references to the English National Curriculum but learners will be encouraged to review their local curricula to contextualise the course content.

This course adopts a reflective practice approach that will also support the development of teaching skills for non-UK teachers.
