This paper intends to disseminate the results of a study whose main aim was to understand the impact of the Basic Education Curricular Reorganisation for the curricular practices and collaboration dynamics of Natural and Physical Sciences teachers. The empirical study adopted a quantitative approach and the results report on 1122 questionnaires completed by Natural and Physical Sciences teachers. To deepen these results, we collected qualitative data, obtained from interviews with six Natural and Physical Sciences teachers who participated in the first part of the study. The results obtained suggest a superficial appropriation of the central concepts concerning current education discourse and indicate that the implementation of the Basic Education Curriculum in Portugal doesn’t produce effective changes in teachers’ practices. We consider this requires essential and concerted action between teachers, Education Institutes and Central Administration.
Keywords: Curriculum. Natural and Physical Sciences. Competency. Teachers‘ collaboration.
