KS3 and KS4 Forces, Pressure and Moments

Sir Christopher Hatton Academy
NN8 4RP

22 November 2018
All day

EVENT FOCUS

To book a space, please email teachingschool@hattonacademy.org.uk. This event is organised, run, and funded by the Stimulating Physics Network.

This FREE Physics CPD day will improve your knowledge and confidence in teaching Physics as a non-specialist teacher. It includes a range of practical strategies and demos’ which you can immediately take back to your classroom and share with your colleagues, based on the theme of forces, pressures and moments.

In addition to the two practical sessions, the day includes a Maths for Physics session giving you the knowledge and experience to know when and how the maths, that students need to be successful physicists, is taught. This well attended session is an excellent opportunity to build your CPD, gain a support network and implement new ideas into your school.

KS3 and KS4 Waves and the Electromagnetic Spectrum

To book a space, please email teachingschool@hattonacademy.org.uk. This event is organised, run, and funded by the Stimulating Physics Network.

Are you a recently qualified teacher at the beginning of your KS5 teaching career or a non-specialist looking to improve your subject knowledge to enable you to teach KS5? Maybe you are an experienced A-level physics teacher looking for some new ideas for your KS5 lessons? We will focus on fields and gases in this session.

This FREE A-level Physics CPD day will give you an opportunity to try out a range of practical strategies and demos’ which you can immediately take back to your classroom and share with your colleagues. In addition to the two practical sessions, the day includes a Maths for Physics session in which you will learn how Mechanics is treated in A-level Maths compared with A-level Physics. This will give you the knowledge and experience to know when and how the maths, that students need to be successful physicists, is taught. The day will also be a great opportunity to network with other A-level Physics teachers in the region.

EVENT FOCUS

The Datamouse project was started by the paper Stopwatch which was published in Physics Education in March 2009, and provides low-cost training by Alessio Ganci and Salvatore Ganci. This was such a brilliant and simple idea that the Institute of Physics Teacher Network decided to put together a workshop showing other teachers how to make inexpensive computer mice into timing gates.
If you've never soldered before here's a chance to learn.
