The new Science Curriculum that commences in 2014 will be introduced and how this will impact on teaching and learning. What is an outstanding lesson as viewed by OFSTED will be covered, along with creative and practical ideas that give teachers the confidence to deliver this exciting subject when they return to class. Creative ways on how to assess this subject will be shown and as is the way with all our courses, there will be plenty of ideas for incorporating technology into your teaching of young children
