Examples of progression grids
The National Curriculum sets out what should be taught at each Key Stage in science. Progression grids offer a breakdown of the key content and targets. This makes it easier to plan and pitch lessons and sets clear expectations for teaching.
Progression grids can be arranged by year group or Key Stage, depending on your school’s needs.
- Dover Park Primary School, on the Isle of Wight, has published a science progression grid on their website. It's organised by topic and year group
- Hartside Primary Academy in County Durham provides topic overviews and progression maps for each year group
