“I really wanted to express how fantastic the NQT science training was yesterday. Tanya was a fantastic trainer and shared some great resources and ideas. As someone who hated science at school and isn't the most confident at teaching it; it inspired me to really think about how I could make my science lessons more creative and fun. I have already begun to implement some of the ideas and resources she shared in my Year 3 classroom and the children love it".
