Kursinhalt

Enhance your KS2 biology classes with CPD from STEM learning

To teach primary science effectively primary education teachers must have sound subject knowledge, but many primary teachers are not science subject experts.

This course will equip you with the key subject knowledge required to effectively teach the biology elements of the primary science national curriculum, focusing on the topic of classification.

Develop your understanding of the classification of living things

Classification is how we group living things based on features, similarities, and differences.

You’ll build your personal knowledge of classification in order to effectively teach the biology content in the primary science curriculum to pupils aged 7-11.

Discover KS2 science activities for teaching classification

Through the course, you’ll explore common misconceptions about classification that children may have.

You’ll learn how to identify and help KS2 pupils overcome these misconceptions using practical teaching strategies and activities.

Get teacher CPD for teaching science in the primary national curriculum

The National STEM Learning Centre is the biggest provider of education, teacher CPD, and careers support in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.

This course has been created by primary STEM subject specialists in collaboration with secondary science experts.

Your educating team are all experienced teachers themselves and all of the course content is developed using up-to-date research and insights.

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.
