This year we will be looking at our teaching of science to see where we can make further improvements. We aim to teach science as practically as possible because we believe this is how children learn best. Also in the summer term we will be organising a science themed week culminating in an exhibition to parents and carers.
Children will be focusing on working scientifically to answer questions about the world around them. They will do this by asking questions, collecting and analysing data, developing explanations, solving problems and seeking and using evidence to test their ideas and answer questions. The children will be working scientifically through exploration using all of their senses.
Please take every opportunity to encourage your child to practise these skills at home.
The children will be looking at the following topics this half term:
Year 1 – Animals including Humans
Year 2 – Plants
Year 3 – Plants
Year 4 – Electricity
Year 5 – Forces
Year 6 – Evolution and Inheritance
