WCEC07 Exploring Primary Science in the Classroom

Mon 1st, Tues 2nd, Wed 3rd, Thurs 4th and Fri 5th July 2019

9.30a.m. – 11.30a.m. and 12.00p.m. – 2.00p.m.

Science really is brilliant! 

‘What is DNA?’  ‘What is blood made of?’   ‘Are bacteria really bad?’ ‘Why do we NEED creepy crawlies?’  ‘How do you wire a toy house for light?’ ‘Why is pH important?’ You can find out and use this information in your classroom!

Come and enjoy the fun and practical side of science.  Using the skills of the science curriculum we will actively investigate and explore how to construct a lung or use the microscope to look at a plant cell. Develop awareness of the basic life processes in plants and animals, including circulation and breathing for the human body.

Discuss the importance of environmental awareness and care and develop strategies to investigate the ecosystems of natural environments including trees and hedgerows.

Build a range of simple electrical circuits and explore kitchen chemistry!

These sessions will also discuss how differentiation in science as well as inclusion of SEN children in the Science class.  Focus on school self-evaluation as well as literacy and numeracy in these lessons will be discussed.  Create and identify simple science targets for use in your Science School Self-Evaluation Plan.
