Kursinhalt

Learn how to teach evolution and inheritance to primary school pupils

When teaching science in primary school, subject knowledge is essential to help students overcome any misconceptions they may have around biology and evolution.

Through this course, you’ll deep dive into the topic of evolution and inheritance as part of the primary school biology and science national curriculum.

Understand the value of sound subject knowledge when teaching primary school science

Most primary school teachers don’t have a science background and aren’t science experts.

This course will develop your subject knowledge teaching the evolution and inheritance elements of the biology curriculum.

Support your key stage 2 pupils with effective teaching strategies

Key stage 2 pupils (aged 7-11) may have various misconceptions around the subject of biology and especially evolution and inheritance.

These can sometimes be hard to identify, explain and overcome.

You’ll learn how to help pupils who are struggling and ensure they fully understand the information and concepts included in the evolution and inheritance element of the English national curriculum.

Discover fun and practical activities for teaching evolution in school

Identifying and utilising the right teaching strategies is key for primary school teachers’ CPD.

You’ll learn how to keep your students engaged throughout the lesson with practical science activities.

You’ll explore various teaching strategies that will encourage participation in the classroom and give your pupils a thorough grounding in this important topic.

This course is designed for primary teachers and trainee teachers in primary education (pupils aged 5-11 years) who want to develop their biology subject knowledge, specifically the topic of evolution and inheritance.

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.
