KS3 curriculum mapping – it probably sounds like a dream if you’re an organised strategist but not so much if you aren’t. Curriculum maps outline the learning plan for the entire teaching year, they’re essentially a roadmap. Every school is required to follow the National Curriculum’s guidelines but creating a full KS3 curriculum map can be very daunting. Pupils need to be taught specific skills but that can’t be done if they don’t have specific prior knowledge – they have to be able to crawl before they can walk. Beyond’s curriculum maps break down the topics that need to be covered, the prior knowledge needed to cover them and the new skills that should be taught to your pupils. Our curriculum maps give you a lightning-fast understanding of what you need to plan and teach effectively.
So how can you start mapping out your class’ curriculum? We’ve got all the information you need for English, Maths and Science and the best part is it’s just one download away! We’ve taken care of all the hard stuff so you don’t have to.
