Primary Science Development Network Workshop: Session 3


Unfortunately, due to the current climate, the University has reluctantly reached the view that the Primary Science CPD event taking place on Wednesday 10 June 2020 should be postponed. The University is very sorry to find itself in this position but hope you understand the decision we have had to take.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus when organisers have been able to re-schedule a new date.

Following the Ofsted note that 'school leaders need to ensure that teachers have deep subject knowledge and to consider what curriculum design really involves in science' (Ofsted, 2019), expert staff within the Institute of Childhood and Education (ICE) at Leeds Trinity University have prepared a series of primary science development workshops aimed at supporting and developing effective teachers of primary science across the region.

What's happening?

The upcoming workshop sessions will focus on key elements of primary science to develop pedagogy and practise. Each session will be led by experienced primary science specialists and activities will vary in age phases and experience for the range of teachers in attendance.

This session (Wednesday 10 June) is the final half-day CPD sessions for primary teachers across all key stages are open to all teachers of science including science coordinators. You can see full details below, including links to the other sessions.
