Science

This term, we will develop our understanding of working scientifically. This is a key aspect of the national curriculum. 

Children will be taught to use the following practical scientific methods, processes and skills through the teaching of the programme of study content:

  • Asking relevant questions and using different types of scientific enquiries to answer them;
  • Setting up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests;
  • Making systematic and careful observations and, where appropriate, taking accurate measurements using standard units, using a range of equipment, including thermometers and data loggers;
  • Gathering, recording, classifying and presenting data in a variety of ways to help in answering questions;
  • Recording findings using simple scientific language, drawings, labelled diagrams, keys, bar charts, and tables;
  • Reporting on findings from enquiries, including oral and written explanations, displays or presentations of results and conclusions;
  • Using results to draw simple conclusions, make predictions for new values, suggest improvements and raise further questions;
  • Identifying differences, similarities or changes related to simple scientific ideas and processes;
  • Using straightforward scientific evidence to answer questions or to support their findings.
