Teaching chemistry in Key Stage 2, Inspiration Trust Curriculum Centre, Thursday, 21. March 2019

About the course
In this session we will consider the extent to which chemistry features on the primary science national curriculum and where it occurs. In doing so we will draw on substantive knowledge of the tire 2 and 3 words used in chemistry and how significant this is in building good foundations for later learning in chemistry.
In the process of considering the importance of teaching chemistry as simply as possible but not simpler, we will build teacher confidence with the substantive and conceptual knowledge of chemistry. 
Who should attend?
The course is aimed at anyone who teaches primary science from year 1 to year 6 or to those with responsibility for science within their school.
