If you’re thinking of adopting our 5-year curriculum plan, you’ll want this: a unit contents list showing where all the main concepts in the curriculum will be taught. If you’ve seen the sample unit planners, you’ll know that concepts (rather than content) are at the heart of our approach. If students understand these, and can connect them together – they’ve got the big idea.
The contents list should help you to decide if you need to move content around from your current plan. The list covers Key Stage 3 and Combined Science GCSE. It’s been checked for AQA Trilogy, and would only require minor changes to fit other specifications.
There are separate pages listing physics, chemistry and biology content. We’ve only included the concepts at the moment – the skills will follow.
This is a draft and we would like feedback, please! Is there anything you think is in a strange place? Or missing? The final version may also change a little when we flesh out the contents of each unit.
If you’re a beta user, you can download the unit contents below.
