‘Exploring Evolution’ CPD course

Duration: Twilight – 1.5 hours
Suitable For: Teaching staff, ECTs, TAs, science leads

Exploring Evolution is based on research from the Milner Centre for Evolution which provides evidence for how teachers should approach the teaching of this subject to best develop children’s understanding. The session includes a range of easy to implement practical activities that enable children to progress from observations of adaptations (Year 2) to understanding why this happens (Year 6).

Course Outcomes

  • Understanding the progression of science concepts from adaptation to inheritance, variation, natural selection and evolution.
  • Provision of easy to implement practical activities that allow children to deepen their understanding of these concepts and provide opportunities for the development of working scientifically skills.
