Linking primary science and English for impact (Cancelled)
Hertfordshire Development Centre, Stevenage, Robertson House, Six Hills Way
Academies and Schools (including EYFS)
English / Science
This programme is designed to support subject leaders to develop teaching and learning in the two subjects.
Both subject leaders will attend a days’ training, receive a half-day consultancy visit and participate in a reflective half-day session.
During the training day, leaders will consider how learning opportunities for both science and English can be maximised. The day will be full of engaging activities to explore creative ways of teaching science and English which maintain high standards.
Delegates will leave with a range of resources including an extensive book list, curriculum mapping document and lesson suggestions.
A focus / key question for the programme will be developed during the day against which impact can be evaluated.
The consultancy visit and half-day session will involve structured feedback to support self-evaluation, reflect on evidence of impact and identify next steps.
We will consider how to embed good practice across the school and ensure this is sustained.
Schools taking part in the programme have reported that the following has supported them in raising standards and in particular for reluctant writers:
- increased engagement, excitement and inspiration for pupils and teachers, reigniting a love of science
- a wider range of creative writing which both pupils and teachers are proud to share
- the development and support of oracy as a basis for learning
By attending the course, participants will:
- explore how pupils can apply English skills when sharing specific understanding
- consider how using Science as a context excites and engages pupils in English
- review good practice in the teaching and learning of both science and English
- reflect on the structures and systems needed to ensure future sustainability
Both subject leaders are required to attend this training, the cost is £570 per school for both delegates.
