The rationale for this workshop is to increase awareness of the sometimes contradictory academic literature about effective primary science education. Some of the strategies will be exemplified with practical activities. The session will focus on both pedagogy and curriculum, including the use of models and representations, talk for learning, misconceptions and conceptual change, and cross-curricular science. In line with best practice in CPD, theory will be linked to practice, and participants will be expected to be both hands-on and minds-on. They will be encouraged to reflect on the strategies they currently use or promote and consider which other strategies they might adopt.
