    Update on new resources

    by Emma Cooper -

    ALL Learning Journeys have been updated

    Some amendments have been made to the substantive knowledge in these documents to ensure clarity and coverage of the National Curriculum statutory requirements. Any amendments are shown in blue or green. The Learning Journeys can be found in the Moodle+ area.


    These changes have been made following the creation of substantive knowledge progression documents which can be found in the 'Open resources' area on the Science Moodle Science Moodle: All courses (hants.gov.uk) These documents aim to provide clarity around the substantive knowledge in the Learning Journeys and how they match and/or exceed the statutory requirements in the National Curriculum. 


    Also, I have updated the ‘map’ which shows how the Learning Journeys link. I will be working with Kevin in the coming days/ week to add Year 7 onto this map as well. This is also in the Open Resources area.


    Finally, Substantive Knowledge Trackers, in both Word and Excel formats have been added to the Moodle+ area.


    Do let us know what you think of these resources. We always welcome any feedback.

    Remember to book your place - Summer 21-22 Primary Science Coordinators Networks – Multiple dates and locations available

    by Caroline Cain -

    These network groups provide a forum for science coordinators to work collaboratively on improving the teaching and leadership of science. 

    Over recent years we have worked together to develop a science curriculum that builds powerful knowledge whilst engaging children in challenging scientific problem solving, central to this has been encouraging and drawing upon children’s curiosity. The product of this work has been the Hampshire Learning Journeys which are used to good effect by many schools and available to all schools who participate in these networks.

    All network meetings combine sharing of ideas and techniques, practice with peers and opportunities to test what is shared in school. All the training materials are designed to be easily adapted for use back in schools.
