In our ongoing series about the curriculum, science expert Ed Walsh highlights the key points to consider when teaching physics-based topics in Key Stage 3.
The role of practical work in the new GCSE science specifications has changed. What will this mean for lessons? How will this impact assessment? In this webinar, Ed Walsh takes a look at the impact of the changes on science lessons as we know them, and gives some practical advice on incorporating enquiry-based work into your curriculum.
This PowerPoint supports Ed Walsh's Webinar: Creative practicals in the new GCSE science curriculum.
The new science curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2 encourages a variety of approaches to pupils’ scientific investigations – but how creative can you be in a subject where the boundaries are so fixed? Ed Walsh examines the power of creativity within constraints, and gives a range of example activities to teach the physics-based topic, stars and space.
