Stated learning outcomes for this course
Come along for a lively investigation into the biology parts of the science curriculum.  We will consider what it means to work scientifically, and will sample fun ways to learn about plants, habitats, plant lifecycles, classification, food chains, evolution and more.  Explore the Botanic Garden to see how outdoor spaces can be used to enhance teaching science.  We’ll use a combination of hands-on activities and experiments to explore the science of the natural world, and provide plenty of ideas and inspiration for you to take back to your classroom.
