Talk 1 - Rachel Wolford
Primary Science Transition - How do I do it? Why would I want to do it? Will it benefit my pupils? Come along, find out and discuss the answers to these and other questions surrounding cluster primary to secondary science transition. Hear about two successful year 6 / P7 transition projects that evolved from primary and engaged pupils, promoted science skills and collaboration and shared their success with parents. Find out about using kitchen science resources – not expensive hard to access equipment! Interested? Got questions? Want to create your own transition project?

Talk 2 - Sharon Smith
The purpose of this talk is to show participants resources linking Science to literacy in Early Years. This was used as a transition project at Gavinburn Primary to bring Science into Early Years transition to enhance active learning. Primary 5 children were used within transition activities to develop their own scientific questioning skills and develop the buddy system. All resources will be shared with participants.
