SCIENCE

  • The 'Living World' and
  • 'Planet Earth and Beyond' strands are taught by  the class teacher during their inquiry lessons

.............while............The 'Material World' and the 'Physical World' are delivered as a specialist subject, within the technology cycle.

  • Physical World in 2020
  • Material World in 2021


In 2020 Students will:

Develop an understanding of the key concepts investigated in relation to the physical phenomenon studied (e.g. movement, forces, static electricity, magnetism, light, and how energy is transferred to other forms of energy.)Use scientific language to express their learning. Investigate physical phenomenon using the scientific method and practising process skills. Being organised (working with a partner) and following the steps:: asking testable questions, making predictions, testing, careful observation, measuring, recording, presenting and concluding.

Contribute to group and class discussions showing scientific thinking/awareness and curiosity. Increasingly students will become aware of the 'Nature of Science'.  Explain how scientific knowledge/phenomenon has been applied to the design of technologies and comment on how it has changed the world and how we do things.

In 2021 Students will:

Develop an understanding of the key concepts investigated in relation to the material phenomenon studied e.g. the particle nature of matter (using this to explain observed changes), chemical and physical changes and relating learning to the real world, Use scientific language to express their learning. Investigate physical phenomenon using the scientific method and practising process skills, being organised (working with a partner) and following the steps:: asking testable questions, making predictions, testing, careful observation, measuring, recording, presenting and concluding.
