Global learning in the science national curricula

Support documents from Practical Action

KS2: ages 7-11KS3: ages 11-14Website

The science curricula in the UK offer opportunities for teachers to enhance pupils’ learning by embedding global issues in their teaching. Global learning is not just about the context, it is about using methodologies that encourage discussion and debate, thereby developing pupils’ critical thinking. Within science it both engages and motivates pupils as well as deepening their scientific knowledge and understanding.

These documents show how global learning can be linked to the difference science curricula in the UK and give examples of Practical Action’s teaching resources and other materials that can be used to support delivering science lessons.

This is useful background information for science teachers at Key Stages 2 and 3 seeking ways to bring global issues into their teaching.
