A new term that is unlike any other start of term previously. Given the pressures of COVID-19 it is more important than ever that we work collaboratively across the city within the community that has been established for primary science. This message outlines how the OA KS2 science project will adapt to meet its original expectations and how it can be responsive to shifting priorities and the urgent concerns that subject leaders now face. Key to the success to date of the KS2 science project is teacher to teacher talk for learning, we have more teachers talking about science learning, planning, resources, assessment, new approaches, funding and great ideas to challenge and improve. The opportunities area funding enabled Stoke-on-Trent to bring national expertise to the city with sustained programmes from three Universities and their researchers.
Local teacher community and national partner collaboration continues to underpin the SATC approach.
