Year 2 Science Quiz - fun science assessment!

Year 2 Science Quiz - fun science assessment!

This is a science quiz which covers all of the science objectives required at year 2. I first used in during a knowledge review week in summer 2. Completed in mixed ability teams of 6, but can be set up however suits your class the best. I told the children that there would be first and second prizes, I didn't tell them until the end that first prize was for the best teamwork. During the quiz we really promoted and praised good team work that we saw. Team captain was also the scribe for the team so there was no squabbling over the pencil! I read out each question and gave teams enough time to answer them before moving on. Took one lesson to complete.

Carnivore, Herbivore, Omnivore Activity

Carnivore, Herbivore, Omnivore Activity

A cut and paste activity to help children learn about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores and their diets by using the descriptions underneath the pictures to sort the animals into 3 categories. * 18 real life animal photos, two versions included - with and without animal diets descriptions. The latter can be used for more able students to research on the internet, in books, etc. Most photos also show animal teeth so the pupils can use them as well as the information about animal diets to sort them accordingly. * Worksheet to cut and paste your answers on to. * Black and white version of the pictures to save on ink. Thank you for your interest. Hoppy Times

Topic wheels for Year 2 science 2014 curriculum self-assessment

Topic wheels for Year 2 science 2014 curriculum self-assessment

There is one wheel per area of the Year 2 2014 science curriculum. Topics include; The Human Body, Animal Survival and Growth, Plants, Materials and Living Things and Their Habitats. Before starting a new topic children shade in each segment to reflect their prior knowledge. Includes some elements from Y1 curriculum. Statements taken/developed from the science Interim Assessment Framework (ITAF). At the end of the topic the children revisit each statement and shade in a circle next to each one to reflect their new knowledge and understanding. Lesson objectives can then be taken directly from the topic wheels to make linking back very simple. In September I complete as a whole class activity, reading out each statement in turn. By July most of the children could complete independently and it took a lot less time. Children really enjoyed looking back and reflecting on their learning in science. I followed up with an end of year science quiz which the children completed in mixed ability teams.

Label the skeleton activity - human body key stage one/two

Label the skeleton activity - human body key stage one/two

A skeleton labelling activity which I am using with Year 2 as progression from naming body parts in Year 1. Use as part of science curriculum on human health and growth. Learning Objective: Name and find parts of the human body. Links with science ITAF for year 2, going deeper than Y1 learning about basic body parts. Children to complete activity independently after larger scale teacher input. I plan to do a 'pin the label on the skeleton' activity first, using a Halloween skeleton bought in the supermarket, with the whole class. This will then be left on display as support while children complete activity. Children could be challenged to add more labels of their own using topic books/encyclopedias for support. Files include blank skeleton template, sheet of labels (3 per sheet) and a WAGOLL. All images hand drawn. Would also be fun to do as part of 'Funnybones' topic.

Life Cycle of a frog - Interactive Activities and Worksheets

Life Cycle of a frog - Interactive Activities and Worksheets

Life cycle of a frog - this resource contains an interactive whiteboard smart notebook activity. It shows the life cycle of the frog and then has a range of interactive activities to reinforce the learning. It has activities where students must determine what frogs eat. There are accompanying worksheets for the frog life cycle as well as pre-literacy reading and writing worksheets relating to the frog. There is a ‘how to guide’ to make a frog and in doing so the frog evolves through the stages of its life cycle to enhance students understanding through this practical activity. It has visual images to reinforce the understanding of the concepts. It was design for special needs but would work very well for early mainstream students.
