PROV­ING SCI­ENCE CAN BE FUN FOR TEACH­ERS AND PUPILS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A SCHOOL teacher has picked up an award af­ter help­ing to de­velop a course for teach­ers to get young­sters into sci­ence.

Ju­dith Re­vie, who teaches year four pupils at Dave­nies School in Bea­cons­field, was part of a team who won an award at tech­nol­ogy event BETT.

The prize was given to Twig­world, a group which creates teach­ing tools for the class­room, and Im­pe­rial Col­lege Lon­don, for its pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment course Reach Out CPD.

More than 7,000 UK pri­mary teach­ers in the UK use the re­source, which aims to boost the con­fi­dence of pri­mary school teach­ers in sci­ence and to teach chil­dren about the world around them.

Twig­world worked with a num­ber of dif­fer­ent teach­ers, in­clud­ing Miss Re­vie, on the pro­ject, and last year a film crew came to Dave­nies to film her teach­ing sci­ence to year four boys.

It also cap­tured some of the dis­cus­sions tak­ing place in the class­room, the ex­per­i­ments un­der­taken and in­ter­views with the pupils about their work.

Dave­nies head teacher Carly Ry­croft said: “Not only is this a su­perb re­source for the class­room but, as a school, we are in­cred­i­bly proud of Ju­dith’s in­volve­ment in this, and of the boys’ con­tri­bu­tion too.”
