Science in my pocket LIMITED
Limited Capacity filling up

Science in My Pocket is a set of structured activities for primary school teaching assistants to use with individual children who for whatever reason need to leave the classroom. The workshop aims to practically share with you some of the materials and examine the research and the outcome of trials in a variety of school settings. You will see how the materials aims to help children to develop the personal skills and habits of mind to enable them to be self-regulating and motivated learners. To use engagement with science to help deal with their own emotional and/or behavioural difficulties. Like the children you will explore science concepts through small focused practical activities. The workshop will demonstrate how the materials support teaching assistants to develop new strategies to work on a one-to-one basis with children in their care whose emotional/behavioural difficulties prevent them from accessing the curriculum in the classroom.
