Jo Moore is very excited to be joining the Explorify team after 18 years of primary teaching. For the last eight years, Jo has been lucky enough to be a specialist science and computing teacher at Vittoria Primary School in Islington. During that time, she has taught science across the school and supported teachers to build their skills and confidence. Prior to that, Jo was an Advanced Skills Teacher in Science, supporting teachers and Science Leads in other schools. Jo has lots of experience of teaching the English primary science curriculum and is keen to support new and more experienced teachers across the country, as well as Science Leads.
Recently, Jo has been part of the Primary Science Capital Teaching Approach research project and is eager to bring some of those ideas to Explorify. Jo has used Explorify regularly in the classroom, to develop children’s talk and higher order thinking skills, and is looking forward to contributing to such a great resource.
