The Little Science Society have developed science syllabus that provide seamless progression in scientific knowledge, understanding and skills across the primary-secondary interface.
‘Bridge the Gap’ programme developed by The Little Science Society helps to create the link between primary and secondary curriculum programme. It gives primary pupils the chance to explore different scientific topics and carry out activities with resources and guidance they wouldn’t always have access to. Each session is tailored around DfE Programmes of Study, using expert knowledge of different teaching approaches and learning styles. It is truly invaluable because it helps make the transition between key stages smoother for the pupils, particularly important for pupils starting secondary school.
The programme of study includes a sequence of knowledge.
Primary Science Day Workshops (online and live) and KS2 STEM Challenges are available on request.
