Science lessons at Cold Harbour  C of E Primary school are linked to half termly topics where possible. For example, during an ‘Enchanted Woodland’ topic, children observe the germination a seed; they classify woodland plants; and carry out comparative tests on plant growth.
Children experience different types of scientific enquiry which involves regular practical work. In key stage 1 and 2 children are given the opportunity to:
– observe changes over a period of time
– notice patterns
– group and classify things
– carry out simple comparative tests
– find things out using secondary sources of information.
Science lessons also include using scientific vocabulary, asking questions, making decisions and recording results in a number of different ways. Children make predictions, simple conclusions and suggest improvements. This is progressive from one year group to the next as children develop their scientific skills and understanding.
