    Developing your Science Curriculum

    Date/time: Tuesday 5 November 2019
    Location: TBC

    9.30-10am: Our successes and challenges – what do we want from this session/network? – led by Sam Webber

    Sam Webber is an experienced teacher and a cross phase Science and Mathematics Advisor. She supports Islington and Bexley Local Authorities as well as individual schools across London and the South-East. Much of her work focuses on raising standards in schools and delivering training based around schools’ needs. She is passionate about developing teachers understanding of Science so that this leads to greater enjoyment in the classroom, more children developing a sense of curiosity about the world around them and eventually aspiring to a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) career. For many, this could be the key that breaks the circle of poverty and deprivation.
