Date:                25 September 2018

Duration:          13:00 – 18:00

Location:          The Hollins Technology College, Hollins Lane, Accrington BB5 2QY

Fee:                  £125

Summary:

Collecting, analysing and presenting data in science requires and provides opportunity for the use and development of mathematical skills.Throughout this course, you will identify how to maximise your pupils opportunities to develop their numeracy skills and improve attainment in science by planning lessons in which children effectively handle data.You will explore a range of strategies designed to improve children’s ability to use scientific language.You will be able to maximise the opportunities for developing literacy skills and improving attainment in science by planning lessons in which children communicate science ideas, knowledge and understanding.

Outcomes:

  • plan science activities that develop mathematical skills
  • identify the progression of mathematical and science skills
  • use science activities to effectively assess mathematical skills
  • gain an awareness of the nature and breadth of opportunities for linking science and literacy
  • develop strategies for raising attainment in science through developing speaking, listening and writing skills to communicate scientific learning
  • begin to identify progression in science and literacy

Location:          The Hollins Technology College, Hollins Lane, Accrington BB5 2QY

Fee:                  £125

Summary:

Science can be used to support the development of the three characteristics of effective learning through exploration of the immediate environment. This course will increase your confidence in using a range of approaches and assessment strategies to meet children’s needs in Early Years.

You will be able to:

  • identify and plan opportunities for the development of the  three characteristics of effective learning
  • have an extended range of strategies to engage children with their immediate environment
  • have increased confidence in using a range of assessment approaches
