New Twilight CPD Courses for primary teachers
Science Oxford specialises in providing CPD for primary teachers with a strong hands-on element – if you book or attend one of our courses then you will spend most of your time trying practical activities out for yourselves. All our courses are linked to the new primary curriculum and our goal is to engage and inspire you in science, design and technology and computing and enable you to feel equipped to do the same for your pupils.
We have recently developed several new twilight courses, which can be delivered in your school either as part of your Science Oxford membership package or as a stand-alone event.
Exceeding in Science – This course explores what “exceeding” means in relation to primary science, what it looks like in the classroom and how you can challenge pupils to achieve it.
Thinking, Doing, Talking Science
Thinking, Doing, Talking Science (TDTS) aims to make science lessons in primary schools more practical, creative and challenging by training teachers in a number of strategies to encourage pupils to use higher order thinking skills. Training in TDTS can be delivered in one full day CPD or now as three separate twilight sessions.
Thinking, Doing, Talking Science 1 – Introduction to the programme and Bright Ideas Time
Thinking, Doing, Talking Science 2 – Squeezing the Higher Order Thinking out of Practical Investigations
Thinking, Doing, Talking Science 3 – Focused Recording
