I wrote about Reach Out CPD back in September when the first block of modules was launched. Well, this week the final block of modules has gone online, so it’s a good time to write about it again.
If you are a primary school teacher, and you are looking for some support and ideas to help teach the new Science Curriculum, then Reach Out CPD is well worth visiting. And even better, it’s totally free!
The resources have been mapped to curricula for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. There are 30 online courses in total. 24 of which cover Science content knowledge such as Space, Plants, Food and Feeding, Rocks and Soils, and 6 units which cover science skills, such as Working Scientifically, Inspiring Future Scientists and Cross-curricular Science.
Each online course is broken up into short learning units that include films featuring Imperial College London academics, tailor-made factsheets, images, diagrams, quizzes and lots of ideas for practical classroom activities. The site is totally free, all you need to do is sign up for an account.
If you are a primary teacher, or know one who might need some support in teaching science, then do please let them know about the Reach Out CPD site.
Disclaimer. I’m slightly biased in my view of Reach Out, as I’m the author! But I think you’ll agree it’s a very useful free resource.
