KS1/2 Science - As Easy As CPD 2



Claire Duncan and Sukhbinder Bachra recently planned two science lessons on the subject of light; one for Claire's Year 3 and another for Sukhbinder's Year 5 class.

As part of their continuing professional development, the teachers met with primary science consultant Rosemary Feasey who offered them inspirational advice on teaching science more creatively.

In this programme, Claire and Sukhbinder review their lessons with a detailed look at what happened in the classroom.

Claire uses a story about a teddy bear needing new sunglasses to inspire her Year 3 class. The children design and make new sunglasses using light sensors to assess the best materials for lenses.

Sukhbinder's Year 5 class investigate solar eclipse and are asked to predict what would happen if the eclipse lasted a long time. The children work in groups and later make presentations to the rest of the class.

Throughout the programme, Claire and Sukhbinder candidly comment on their triumphs and misgivings.
