Our latest staff meeting starter has been released: Developing scientific vocabulary. Supporting primary pupils to develop scientific vocabulary can help them to actively participate in science learning and effectively communicate their understanding. However, scientific vocabulary can often be confusing and abstract, making it difficult for pupils to fully understand and use it. Even everyday words can suddenly have a new meaning when used in a science context. The Education Endowment Foundation found that explicitly teaching scientific vocabulary is a useful strategy to help pupils learn. This staff meeting starter encourages discussion about how effectively the planning and implementation of your science curriculum ensures pupils acquire the vocabulary needed to learn science. To find out more click here, or to sign up to receive the staff meeting starters, click here.
