Implementation

Implementation:
All lessons build on prior learning and teachers support children to learn and remember more through:

  • Use of the ‘Big Ideas in Science’ to form key knowledge documents across school; 

  • Opportunities to develop content knowledge alongside process knowledge. Scientific enquiry (process knowledge) embedded in each topic, revisited and built upon throughout their time in school;  

  • A knowledge organiser which outlines sticky knowledge (including vocabulary) all children must master;  

  • Completion of a concept cartoon to elicit prior knowledge and understanding on which to build learning and encourage children to pose questions and spark their curiosity;  

  • A cycle of lessons for each topic, which carefully plan for progression and depth;  

  • Low stakes tests or quizzes to support learners’ ability to block learning and increase space in the working memory;  

  • Elaborative questioning to challenge pupils to apply their learning in a range of ways; 

  • Trips and visits from experts who will enhance the learning experience;  

  • A big emphasis on practical investigation, encouraging children to find answers to questions they raise;  

  • Specialist vocabulary for topics taught and built up;  

  • Opportunities for curriculum adaptation and challenge, pre teaching and interventions for those children who may require it, including those with SEN, throughout a topic or prior to a new topic being taught.
