PROVING SCIENCE CAN BE FUN FOR TEACHERS AND PUPILS
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.”
