Plan, Teach, Link and Assess: Outstanding Science in KS2

Course Details

Assessing science enables teachers to track pupils’ progress in order to inform future
teaching and learning. With the loss of the level descriptors teachers will have to monitor
and track pupils’ progress in science in a different way. ‘Primarily Science’ has produced a
progression, assessment and tracking tool to help support schools in doing this.

Participants will have the opportunity to examine this tool and learn how it can easily be
adapted to use in their schools. They will then explore a range of Assessment for Learning
techniques and strategies for confirming progress and will consider how they can be
implemented in the primary classroom.

Teachers will leave with the “Assessing and tracking primary science in curriculum 2014”
pack produced by Primarily Science. This can then be freely adapted to suit the needs of
individual schools.

Course participants will:

Know how to track pupil progress in science.

Tracking Primary Science tool” in their school.

Use a range of ‘Assessment for Learning’ strategies effectively to promote children’s
