The Importance of Excellent Storytelling in Science (with a focus on the KS2 topic of Evolution) FULL
Limited Capacity full

Novels, picture books and oral stories can all provide a context for science learning, but what makes an excellent science story? How can non-fiction be used in the same way as a narrative? How can we best use stories to engage primary children (and their teachers) in science? This interactive session, with some take-home ideas for use in the primary classroom, will answer some of these questions. Jules will also showcase a new picture book, developed with illustrator and primary science teacher Rufus Cooper on the topic of evolution and show how this book can be used with KS2 children.
