Once per week over 6 weeks.
WHAT DO SCIENTISTS DO? (KS2 8-11year-olds)
Explore the world of science and investigate the different areas of science that people work in. Let your child have a go at being forensic scientists, zoologists, botanists and more as they develop their knowledge of the scientific method and working scientifically in this six-lesson scheme.

I am an experienced Science Teacher with a demonstrated history of working in the education industry since 2009. My skills include Coaching, Lesson Planning, Educational Technology, Tutoring, and Classroom Management. I am a strong education professional with a Master’s degree focused in Education: Leading Innovation and Change from St Mary’s University, Twickenham. I have trained in Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One Teaching and Behaviour Strategies. I am a creator of fun-filled and interactive science programme for toddlers and pre-schoolers. Delivering classes and in-house nursery sessions – an exciting addition to the existing curriculum, being structured around the 4 key areas of learning & development from the EYFS framework. Recently I have become an Associate examiner for GCSE/ International GCSE Science (Single combined) (iGCSE). I Received the Rolls Royce Science Prize in the category of Special Merit Award for outstanding contribution to science teaching in 2011.
My teaching experience goes back to 2009, when I worked at The City of London Academy as a Higher-Level Teaching Assistant in science classrooms. I quickly became an unqualified science teacher and continued educating pupils till summer 2015. In September 2015 I accepted a teaching post in Sacred Heart Catholic School in London – one of the top secondary schools in Britain. Due to my extensive experience, I fast-tracked my Qualified Teacher Status in 2016 at the Canterbury Christ Church University. As a full-time teacher I delivered KS3 and KS4 Science Lessons including two different GCSE specifications and. I also taught Biology Physics and Chemistry as a part of a BTEC First Diploma and Extended Certificate qualification. I also delivered alternative science provision to SEN students. In December 2019 I moved to Kent coast where I began new journey as a creator of interactive science programme for toddlers and pre-schoolers.
As an educator I use combination of different methods, and may change my approach depending on context, teaching phase, and content that I am delivering. I strongly believe that modelling, scaffolding and regular quizzing combined, are the most effective method of teaching. However, inquiry-based learning and facilitating students’ own discovery of knowledge is indispensable whilst teaching scientific concepts.
