Working Scientifically

 

  • asking simple questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways
  • observing closely, using simple equipment performing simple tests identifying and classifying using their observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions gathering and recording data to help in answering questions.

 

 

Biology

 

How do astronauts keep healthy?

  • Identify and name basic body parts
  • Identify and compare common animals
  • Basic needs of animals and offspring for survival (water, food, air)
  • Importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food and hygiene.

 

 

 

 

 

Growing Food

  • Identify basic plants and their parts
  • Growing plants – (water, light, warmth)
  • Identify and compare common animals (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals)
  • Basic needs of animals and offspring
  • Simple food chains and habitats – and how they depend on each other.
  • Notice that animals including humans have offspring which grow into adults.

 

Why would dinosaurs not make good pets?

  • Differentiate living, dead and things that have never been alive.
  • Basic needs of animals and offspring
  • Identify and compare common animals (herbivores, carnivores, omnivores)

 

 

Chemistry

 

Moon Buggy / Spacesuit catwalk

  • Distinguish between objects and materials.
  • Identify and name common materials.
  • Describe simple properties of materials.
  • Name and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials.
  • Find out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.
