Extending thinking and talking in primary science - National STEM Learning Centre

Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd January 2017

Nicky Waller is running this course for primary teachers at the National STEM Learning Centre, University of York.

This course is based upon the ‘Thinking, Doing and Talking Science’ project from Oxford which worked on the premise that science lessons which are most successful at engaging and motivating pupils and raising their attainment feature more practical activity, deeper thinking, more discussion, less (but more focused) writing and more questioning.
