Teachers' Resources

This website can be used at almost every Key Stage of the National Curriculum for England and Wales, from KS1 (5-7 yrs) to middle secondary pupils ( 13-14 yrs) - although most of the content is geared towards top junior (9-11yrs) and middle secondary (12-14 yrs) students.

Here are some brief notes and resources to help you plan and deliver lessons around the content on the site. I have tried to make all links as relevant as possible in terms of the UK National Curriculum.

If you want these notes in printable format follow the link to the PDF or word document here - download from the table below and print them off at your leisure.

There are quite a few Flash movies scattered around the site - these were written to illustrate key concepts and ideas and are best viewed either over a network or through a video projector or interactive whiteboard. They would also be useful on a stand-alone computer with a large monitor.

Click on the table below for notes on each of the QCA science and history units and where this site fits in. Several web sites and other resources not featured in the main site are included here where relevant.

Teachers in England and Wales wishing the relevant QCA science scheme of work document should go here.
