Science INSET with Sara Bubb and Andy Markwick

Science Leads for a training session with Dr Sara Bubb and Dr Andy Markwick yesterday afternoon. The focus was supporting primary children in working scientifically – what should this look like across KS1 and KS2? Sara and Andy have worked with primary schools and their staff across the country helping them to deliver a strong, exciting Science curriculum. Staff commented some headlines on what they would take back to school: ‘making Science more quantitive and linking it to Maths and other curriculum subjects’; ‘bringing Science outside’ . Sara also suggested children using Science books as group reading texts. It was good to welcome teachers from our neighbouring clusters, Windmill and Oval to the session.
