Science leaders meet

This week Science leaders from St Gabriel’s College. Archibishop Sumner Primary, Evelyn Grace Academy, St John Divine Primary, Jessop Primary and St Saviour’s Primary met to share samples of children’s work, discuss Science teaching and learning in their schools and plan working together. The enthusiastic group of teachers had valuable exchange of how science is taught in primary compared to secondary. They discussed the value of children being familiar with ways of reading data eg through graphs when they get to secondary. Next term the group plan to set up some sessions where year 5 children can visit and participate in Science lessons in secondary schools, and we hope to run a Science Fair in the Spring.
