Primary Science CPD sessions

 

In this session we will set up practical science experiments for teachers to experiment with, introducing interesting equipment that can make your teaching more exciting. We explain the science behind the experiments, where necessary, up to a GSCE level.

This will be followed by an interactive question and answer session to expand these subjects so that teachers will have the knowledge and confidence to answer any questions posed by their pupils.

We will also discuss any experiments, recipes and equipment needed to do certain activities that teachers might like to attempt in their classes, to extend and liven up their science teaching and to aid with developing a progression from year to year with subjects such as electrical circuits.

Topics to cover:

Forces – equal and opposite forces – drawing and explaining balanced forces, rockets

Electricity – flows of electricity, circuits, commercial circuit boards, motors, generating electricity – using wind generators, fruit, solar panels etc,

Light – splitting up light, into the colours of the spectrum, bending light in transparent materials and from mirrors, optical fibres

Space – Objects in space, day and night, shadows, phases of the moon, life cycle of stars, formation of the solar system, gravity and the bending of space

Air pressure – forces, lift and flight

Chemical reactions – mixing chemicals together to make different chemicals – acids and alkalis and purple cabage indicator, making slime from PVA glue

Sound and frequency – seeing vibrations and the kinds of materials that sound travels best in

Chromatography – a way of separating dyes using the solubility of those dyes in water

Science Club

If you are interested in having an Afterschool Science Club in your school. Ask your school to get in touch with us.

Each week we do practical science experiments covering different aspects of science, from electricity generation to making slime and perfumes.

There is no lower limit to the number of children but 15 is a good manageable number of children in each session.

Our Afterschool Science clubs run for 1 hour after school one day a week.

Our afterschool clubs in Newick Primary, Shipbourne Primary, Claremont Primary and Buxted Primary Schools have all been well attended and enjoyed by the children.
