Developing Scientific Literacy using ‘I Can Explain’ and Dramatic Science
Ali Eley & Clarysly Deller were inspirational in their passion and commitment to developing children's talk skills and for the use of drama as a creative teaching approach for primary science. To find out more about either of these projects visit:
Wonder-full Science Teachmeet at Great Moor Infant School
This was a great event with teachers from across Stockport Local Authority and the City. Contibutors such as Millgate House, Twinkl, the Royal Meteriological Society, Open University and Professor Phil Manning made this a real success. SEERIH hosts a Primary Science Teachmeet each year. In 2016 this was undertaken in collaboration with Manchester Communication Academy and Manchester Science & Industry Museum, where over 250 teachers took part.

Dr Lynne Bianchi commended the work lead by Jacqui Sullivan, Science Subject Leader, saying, “It was thoroughly invigorating to see the high quality science investigations the children had come up with – all credit to a school who has really put science at the heart of their whole school innovations!”.
