Mastering Misconceptions : Making Sure They Know It

Book now

Children have many misconceptions in their scientific understanding.  These misconceptions can prevent them from moving their learning forward and create barriers to grasping new concepts and building up their knowledge.

This full day course identifies the most common misconceptions children have linked to the primary science curriculum.

During the day we will cover background knowledge, ideas, activities and approaches to help ensure the children stand the best possible chance of replacing their misconceptions in science with current scientific thinking and lay firm foundations for increased scientific understanding.

Delegates will leave with all the resources in electronic format so that they can easily adapt to suit their school.


Delegates will :

  • Know which the common misconceptions are held by children in all topics in the current national curriculum for primary science
  • Understand the background scientific knowledge for these common misconceptions
  • Leave with a range of ideas, activities and teaching approaches to help children let go of misconceptions and form new ideas.

£190 per delegate
