Following our very successful outdoor learning session twilight that took place this week, we have been listening to schools' requests for further CPD support to enhance and develop primary science provision locally.
The consensus was that an additional session on Assessment would be useful. We have therefore arranged CPD to directly address this at the next primary science network meeting and we will be subsidising the cost of this to enable as many of our schools as possible to make the most of this opportunity at no cost*.
The details are as follows:
Assessment and progression in primary science (by invitation) RE102 / D12
Date: Wednesday, 3rd October
Venue: Westcliff High School for Girls
Evidence shows that effective Assessment for Learning (AfL) leads to raised attainment. Now that formal recording of levels has been removed, you need to be secure in your understanding of how to make judgements about children's achievements and progress.
Throughout the course we will identify how you can integrate and embed assessment practices into your science teaching.
You will be able to:
- use a range of AfL strategies effectively to promote children’s learning
- acquire a deeper understanding of progression
- make confident and reliable teacher assessment of learning in science and identify children’s next steps
