Teaching Primary Science: Physics

Rachel Jackson, National STEM Learning Centre

Help your primary students to excel in primary school physics

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

On this course, you’ll examine the key subject knowledge areas within the physics element of the primary science curriculum.

You’ll develop your own knowledge of physics and discover practical activities to use in your classroom to explain physics concepts to your students.

You’ll also consider common misconceptions children may have and how to identify and help your students overcome them.

This course is designed for primary teachers and trainee teachers for primary education (pupils aged 5-11 years).

It will also be useful for teaching assistants looking to develop their physics subject knowledge.

The English National curriculum will be referred to, but teachers will be able to apply what they learn to their own curricula.
