Description

Dear Primary School Teachers and Science Co-ordinators

In order to promote the teaching and learning of physics, you are cordially invited to attend the next in Eton College's series of CPD events - Primary Physics Professional Learning course (P3L) delivered by The Ogden Trust on Thursday 14th March 2019. The training is open to ALL primary teachers, but would be particularly useful for science co-ordinators.

The event includes four workshops, lunch and refreshments, all of which are fully funded by Eton College and the Ogden Trust, so you pay nothing.

There will be four hands-on workshops during the course of the day, all delivered by experts from the Ogden Trust. Each will focus on the teaching of science within your classroom and will use methods which are easy to implement. English, maths and cross-curricular themes will be incorporated in the training (please see below for further information).


The training will take place partly in the cutting-edge teaching and learning space, the Tony Little Centre (devoted to Innovation and Research in Learning), and also in Lower School, the oldest schoolroom in continuous use in the United Kingdom and other historic parts of Eton College.

If you are booking on behalf of someone else, please enter the attendee's name and contact details during registration as this is the information we will be using to create name badges and personalised schedules. Thank you.


We look forward to receiving your booking.


Best regards,

Tom Arbuthnott

Director of Outreach and Partnership, Eton College

Workshop A: Magnetic Mathematics

This practical problem-solving workshop demonstrates how maths skills can be developed through teaching the primary science topic of forces and magnets. Delegates will learn how the maths curriculum can be brought to life and made relevant through problem-solving in a science context, providing greater opportunities for children to become immersed in their scientific learning. We will share a number of strategies and resources that can be taken back to school.

Workshop B: Electrifying English

This workshop focuses on how English skills in reading and writing can be developed and practised through the primary science curriculum. Delegates will be shown strategies to support English learning while providing opportunities for children to secure and embed their ideas about electricity and working scientifically. A central theme throughout the workshop will be how different types of scientific enquiry work provide opportunity for developing skill and confidence in reading and comprehension as well as more formal, non-fiction writing styles.

Workshop C: Physics Focus

This interactive lecture will cover the key concepts of light and sound required by the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Easy to replicate demonstrations will provide the hooks for engaging pupils and delegates will develop skills to deepen their understanding through practical investigations and using questions to promote challenge. The workshop will model many strategies to ensure that ‘working scientifically’ skills are developed within this subject area.

Workshop D: Creative Cosmos

This session shows how to use space as a context for cross-curricular projects. Space is a topic that fascinates our pupils and we will look at ways of incorporating art, creative writing, design & technology, ICT, English and maths in this context. Resources will be provided to help you plan a whole school ‘Space Week’.
