Science Topic Units of Work

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.
