About the Webinar

This webinar will provide subject leads and teachers with practical guidance and advice on how to support children to engage with science as part of the national curriculum, and overcome both teacher and student difficulties with challenging topics, to maximise the benefits it can bring as part of their broader development.

The national curriculum states that a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world. Science is vital to the world’s future prosperity, but it can also support the development of a number of skills in children including problem-solving, communication, teamwork, reasoning and overall awareness.

In this webinar, Dr Katy Bloom, senior lecturer and school learning and teaching lead with advanced skills teacher status, will offer an insight into how to apply practical strategies to help recognise, elicit and remediate students’ science misconceptions in lessons and support understanding of more challenging topics.
