PLAN CPD resources
Working scientifically planning coverage CPD
These CPD packages enable science subject leaders in infant, junior or primary schools to deliver an hour's CPD on developing teachers' understanding of the working scientifically statements from the National Curriculum for England and how to plan for full coverage of them.
Each package contains examples of work across a whole year of one or more children's learning that are reviewed by the teachers participating in the training to develop their understanding of the working scientifically statements and whether they are being covered sufficiently or not in that child's learning. They also include commentary on the examples of work, identifying which skills are covered in each activity, to support the science subject leader in delivering the training. A coverage sheet is supplied to help teachers record their conclusions and to support their analysis of their own children's work and planning.
Clear delivery instructions are included with each package as well as a PowerPoint presentation to support the delivery of the CPD.
