Primary
(England, Northern Ireland and Wales)

 

  • There was a fantastic variety of new information over the whole workshop. The quality resources have given me more ideas of how to incorporate learning about Earth Science in my future practice.
  • The facilitator gave some very good teaching ideas and made us feel comfortable in answering questions when we weren't too sure.
  • Very good pace/delivery. Lots of interesting, informative and engaging activities. Would be easy to replicate in school. Enjoyed it very much.
  • Has given me more confidence to teach more practical Earth Science.
  • Very good and engaging tasks, ideal for stimulating curiosity and encouraging children to ask questions.
  • Very impressed that the workshop was available in Welsh. The examples were very good and very useful for future classes.
  • It was really interesting and doing the practical activities rather than just hearing about how to do them was so helpful and made me feel so much more confident in how to do the activities and how it would work in the classroom.

Secondary
(England, Northern Ireland and Wales)

 

  • PGCE tutors at Newman University, Birmingham had observed a noticeable improvement in Earth science teaching over the last few years when visiting schools and that was down to ESEU. 
  • Despite my having a background in Earth Science, this training day was very useful and inspiring re: the range of activities that are possible and suitable and the ways teaching Earth Sciences at Secondary can be approached. A BIG thank you!
  • This session has: provided me with information (I have learnt something!); given me confidence in being able to teach the subject; provided me with support with resources & given me all of the background information I will need.
  • The workshops were very useful, especially at demonstrating interesting practicals to be used in reinforcing Earth Science teaching and how to point pupils towards the evidence for the processes and structures, etc. that they study. Thanks.
  • Very interesting and engaging session which removed some misconceptions and gave me some very good practical ideas to try out when teaching the subject.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the session! I feel more interested in Earth Science now and see the potential of the subject in the classroom.
