Course Content/Objectives

This course will equip teachers with the knowledge and confidence to carry out scientific investigations in the classroom without tearing your hair out. It will cover common misconceptions in science; use of correct language; thinking deeper e.g. using Concept Cartoons.

We will explain the difference between an experiment and an investigation to be able to develop skills further.

Find out the difference between “accurate” and “reliable” and learn some straightforward ways of helping your pupils to carry out investigations.

We will also look at the ACC Skills Development framework and how it can be used to help pupils – and teachers!


Outcomes sought

Increased confidence in using the correct terminology in science classes and add some new “tools” to your science toolbox as well as continuing to increase your skills development.

How does it link to the standards

Have knowledge and understanding of the relevant area(s) of primary curriculum.
