Description Whatever else the new Primary Science curriculum will reveal, the ‘Knowledge’ you will be required to teach will not be enough. To really engage with Science, your pupils will also need to use such ‘higher order’ thinking skills as ‘Understanding’, ‘Applying’, ‘Analysing’ and creative ‘Problem Solving and ‘Reasoning’ generally. ‘Dr Mark’s’ lively and entertaining day is full of fun and easy to deliver ‘hands-on’ Science investigations, experiments, ‘tricks’ and other ‘novel’ activities and ideas designed to stimulate, engage and inspire the ‘scientific’ minds of your pupils.

• Show you a range of engaging Science activities from across the curriculum, with particular focus on the often more difficult to teach ‘physical Sciences’, including forces and motion, chemical reactions and properties of materials
• Show you how such activities can be used in a variety of ways from quick lesson starters to full length lesson activities and even engaging homework
