Stories are an engaging way to spark thinking about science. These stories have been developed for Key Stage 3 learners with cognitive difficulties. Each topic has both a fictional and a factual version of the story. This allows for repetition of key ideas and also caters for differing preferences.
To complement the stories, there are sets of science activities to develop scientific thinking and skills in each topic area. There is also a whiteboard 'poster' for each topic to stimulate talking and listening skills and to develop relevant scientific vocabulary.
CCEA are keen to support teachers and learners in developing key skills. For support or to share ideas and suggestions for future development please contact Treasa Hawksford at firstname.lastname@example.org
