E.G.s Whole school Progression & Tracking Grid For  Primary Science

E.G.s Whole school Progression & Tracking Grid For Primary Science

Education Guru have created a resource bundle that not only tracks each child’s achievements in their year group’s science but also shows you how these dovetail into the Interim Teacher Assessments that the Year 2 and Year 6 teachers have to report on. This handy tool can also help you, as a teacher, to understand progression in science, identify any gaps in your children’s knowledge and working scientifically skills and help you to differentiate.

Measuring skills and data collection and presentation

10 Files for the teaching of measuring skills and data collection and presentation. Suitable for Year 4-5 but can easily be adapted to suit a more / less able group or different age group. Includes: 1. Measuring mass - encourages estimation of mass before measuring, a tricky but worthwhile for younger children. More able can convert between units. 2. Measuring volume / capacity - designed for measuring cylinders but can be adapted to suit available equipment. Includes activities to both read scales and fill containers to a given volume. 3. Measuring length - choosing suitable measuring equipment and accurate measuring. Extension sheet to introduce mixed units and conversion. For data collection and presentation: 1. Shoe size - simple tally chart of shoe sizes in the class and bar chart for presentation. 2. Pencil case classification - sorting objects into material properties - tally and bar chart. Will create interesting opportunities for group work, discussion and feedback. 3. Tennis ball - 2 Investigations into number of bounces from different heights and on different surfaces. Will reinforce skills learnt in measuring work. Tally chart and bar chart. Can be adapted to introduce the concept of averages to a more able group if required. 4. Variation (2 files)- collection of data - eye colour / height / hair colour / rolling tongue from the class and presenting bar chart.

Scientific Process Blooms Inquiry Cycle

Scientific Process Blooms Inquiry Cycle

This is for KS1 and KS2 students. I developed this to cater for the British Curriculum, Topic planning format and the IB PYP inquiry - based curriculum. Any teacher teaching whichever curriculum can use this as a method of teaching their lesson content. This cycle facilitates deeper thinking skills and understanding. If you are interested in this product, literacy, maths and unit of inquiry lessons based on the same model have also been developed.
