help with KS3 national curriculum PLEASE HELP I can't find a list of learning objectives.

Discussion in 'Science' started by nporch, Nov 7, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    I am writing as a new teacher to the English system. I've taught in Scotland but that runs in a different way. I'm trying to develop SOW's for KS3 science.

    Can someone tell me how I find a list of learning objectives for KS3 science please.

    I am going round in circles with the various websites and archives from the English government (whichever one was in at the time).

    The nearest I have to a list of objectives are paragraphs describing 5 main streams including HSW, split into levels from 3-outstanding. Is this it? Is it supposed to be this vague? If so, thats fine, but please someone tell me thats all there is.

    Please, please help, I am going nuts trying to figure this out.

    Cheers,

    Nicky
     
  2. Currently, this is the National Curriculum Programme of Study and until the new National Curriculum is released, this is still statutory :
    http://curriculum.qcda.gov.uk/key-stages-3-and-4/subjects/key-stage-3/science/index.aspx
    These are the QCA scemes of work (not statutory) from a few moons ago. They're based on the National Curriculum so still cover it, but are a bit dry.
    http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20090608182316/http://standards.dfes.gov.uk/schemes2/secondary_science/?view=get
    And yes, the National Curriculm is a tad vague - but we live in hope - Welcome to England! ;-)
