Science Topic Units of Work
The Key Stage 3 Statutory Guidelines for Science outline the main features of the Northern Ireland Curriculum. Teachers plan topics with the ‘Big Picture’ of the Curriculum at Key Stage 3 in mind.
Each unit links to the Key Stage 3 Big Picture. All units identify specific opportunities to promote and develop:
- Key Elements;
- Cross-Curricular Skills; and
- Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities.
You can incorporate these features into subject schemes of work.
The units encourage active and learning teaching methods. You can find further details here.
