28 March 2019 9:00 – 16:00 – Making powerful connections: mathematics and science, literacy and science

Collecting, analysing and presenting data in science requires and provides opportunity for the use and development of mathematical skills. Throughout this course, you will identify how to maximise your pupils opportunities to develop their numeracy skills and improve attainment in science by planning lessons in which children effectively handle data. You will explore a range of strategies designed to improve children’s ability to use scientific language. You will be able to maximise the opportunities for developing literacy skills and improving attainment in science by planning lessons in which children communicate science ideas, knowledge and understanding.
