This Maths and Science series of workshops is aimed at students, primary and secondary teachers who are involved with science and maths teaching.

We will be promoting how progress in maths and science, using a common language and ideas, can help to enable pupils to make links between these two subjects. Once these links are made pupils will be able to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding they have gained, within maths and science, to their own learning experiences.

Implicit within the event is the view that children naturally learn in a cross curricular manner, but in both primary and secondary learning environments there are conflicts. These conflicts within maths and science will be challenged in these workshops.

Ofsted School Inspection 2019 reported:

"People learn new knowledge when new concepts are connected in their minds with what they have already learned."

Primary Workshops

Workshop 1 maths and science primary (EY to KS1)( 35 places)

Linda Atherton is a very experienced science consultant who is a senior facilitator for STEM learning and a PSQM hub leader. She has written and delivered nationally acclaimed creative science courses. Linda has a passion for creating cross curricular experiences with science at the heart of the learning.

This interactive workshop has a focus on EYFS and key stage 1 and will investigate how to interlace science and mathematical skills that will challenge thinking. The session explores real and relevant strategies that are engaging and develop curiosity in using mathematical skills when working scientifically.

Workshop 2 maths and science primary (KS2) (35 places)

Janette Catton has had a passion for science throughout her teaching career, She has been a leading teacher for primary science, a local authority consultant for primary science and has led courses for the Science Learning Centre and taken over 25 schools through the PSQM award for science. She currently works for Teach First but retains her interest in Primary Science.

Her workshop has a focus on Key stage 2 and will explore links between mathematics and science, looking at progression in both mathematical and science skills particularly in the use of data and graphs. We will explore games and interactive strategies to develop key scientific and mathematical skills.

Workshop 3: NFU: STEMterprise Workshop (15 places)

Presenting STEM learning within the context of engaging, real life problems gives children a sense of the purpose and direction of their learning.

In this exciting practical session, we’ll be introducing our cross-curricular project schemes that use real life problems as engaging contexts for learning..

Workshop 4 Science of the Tudors (15 places)

Hands-on workshop from the Royal Society of Chemistry linking the primary science learning objectives to the food, health and other challenges of the Tudor period and present ideas for cross-curricular activities to inspire the scientists of the future. All activities fully implementable in a primary classroom.  

Secondary Workshops

Workshop 1 Maths and Science using equations, graphs and more (40 places)

Meryl and co from Teach First will provide an overview of which topoics in science also appear in the mathematics curriculum-this will be related to which level students are studying at.

Workshop 2 Problem solving in maths and science (40 places)

Meryl and co from Teach First will focus on key overlap topics, looking at topic presentations, students misconceptions and areas where teachers can scaffold and supoport students.

Workshop 3 Three ways to introduce titrations. (15 places)

Titrations are now a required practical but often feel inaccessible to KS4 students. This short session with the Royal Society of Chemistry will equip you with three ideas for introducing the titrations session without the intimidation (or breakage risk) of a burette.

Workshop 4 Maths in physics -Exploring Equations in physics

We Look forward to meeting you on the day
