Teacher CPD

There is increasing evidence that teaching science in the context of topics, can positively impact engagement and achievement.  

 

"Recent research indicates that more than 90% of teachers think that it is important for children to learn about the countryside.  At Stokehill, whether we are covering key curriculum topics, discussing how to plan a farm visit, or exploring ways of using the school grounds, my aim is for teachers to leave feeling confident and full of new ideas."

Debbie Hicks

Increase your confidence in tackling practical science work, update your subject knowledge and explore ways of identifying and tackling possible student misconceptions.

Leave with fun, practical and creative ideas to enable your pupils to learn about plants, animals, natural processes and Working Scientifically.
