CIEC and the University of York Science Education Group (UYSEG), have been awarded the contract to develop lesson resources for teachers and pupils covering the primary and secondary science curriculum in England, age 5-16. CIEC will develop the resources for KS1-2 whilst UYSEG will cover KS3-4. Working with the Oak National Academy, the curriculum resources will draw on the expertise and work of both groups, working with expert teachers across the country.
Matt Hood, Chief Executive of Oak National Academy, said: “Every part of the education sector – from trusts to publishers to subject associations – are part of this collaboration, forming a coalition of top-tier expertise. It means teachers will have access to some of the smartest curriculum thinking and resource design on tap, something they have told us they want.”
As well as developing a full suite of resources for Key Stages 1 and 2, we will be collaborating with our secondary colleagues to smooth transition from Key Stage 2 to 3, thus building on the knowledge and skills children have gained during their primary years.
