You’ll explore the common challenges that may arise amongst key stage 2 pupils encountering the heart, circulatory system, and digestive system for the first time.

You’ll learn how to structure your teaching to successfully navigate these challenges.

You’ll also have the chance to learn about practical biology activities you can use in your classroom to inspire your pupils whilst developing their understanding of the concept of living processes.

Access engaging and fun biology primary science resources

This course is delivered by the National STEM Learning Centre, a leading organisation offering teacher CPD, career support, and education in STEM.

You’ll learn from the research of primary STEM subject specialists, as well as secondary science experts experienced in teaching science in primary education.

This course is designed for primary teachers, trainee teachers, and teaching assistants for primary education (pupils aged 5-11 years) who want to develop their biology classification subject knowledge.

The course refers to the English National Curriculum, but the subject matter is equally transferable to other curricula, and you’ll be encouraged to explore connections with your own national curriculum.
