Teaching Science under the new curriculum

Thank you to all those who attended my repeat course yesterday. I was so impressed with your enthusiasm for science and leading the subject.

I am going to redo the science assessment sheets for the new curriculum and add in a pupil assessment column – after putting that idea out yesterday it’s obvious! So I will update them soon – watch this space!

New Primary Science Individual Assessment Ladders Years 1-6

I have put together these individual pupil assessment ladder sheets for Years 1 -6.  I envisage these being in the back of pupils’ science books/folders and used as a working public document open to pupils and parents to view and teachers to tick off etc .  It might be that an element of pupil/peer use could also be incorporated into their use – this would be a good long term goal…ultimate self assessment! This is very much in line with the whole assessment for learning agenda where there are no ‘teachers secrets’ i.e  ‘I know what you need to do, but you’ll only find out what it is and if you can do it when I tell you.’ This has defined poor teaching for too long.  Anyway, don’t get me started there….

Please let me know if these are useful and if you spot any errors!  Believe me, all that typing and tabling can be very tiresome!
