Online Effective transition between year 6 and 7 in science

This course will focus on how to establish effective transition between year 6 and year 7 in science. You will have the opportunity to consider the nature and content of the year 6 science curriculum, how to develop creative activities that build on prior learning and how to use diagnostic teaching to identify and address gaps in knowledge and skills. You will also evaluate case studies from a variety of sources that showcase effective strategies, techniques and activities to support transition between year 6 and year 7 in science.

Book Here

Outcomes

You will be able to:

  • Establish links between the year 6 and year 7 science curriculum and consider some of the issues around effective transition
  • Consider creative ways in which diagnostic teaching can lead on to addressing gaps in knowledge and skills
  • Develop strategies and techniques to differentiate lessons and support pupils in building a strong base of scientific knowledge and skills
  • Evaluate case studies of transition between year 6 and 7 in science
