Greater Depth in Science
To plan for progress, different types of tasks may be created that prove to the teacher that pupils are gaining a deeper understanding of the same content.
The examples in this file show how pupils working on Milestones 1, 2 or 3 may progress from a BASIC to an ADVANCING and then a DEEP understanding of an aspect of the science curriculum by completing the PoP tasks.
Chris Quigley’s Essentials Curriculum defines the Essential Characteristics of a scientist; these traits are the basis for creating the PoP tasks in Section 3 of this resource.
Greater Depth in Science is a resource designed to help teachers: understand the concept of greater depth in science, plan activities that will lead to progression from fundamental foundations to greater depth, see examples of pupils’ work that show progression and assess progress.
The CD includes all sections of the resource in an electronic format for use within an individual school to aid professional development.
