Working Scientifically I can Statements for Years 1 & 2

Working Scientifically I can Statements for Years 1 & 2

Working Scientifically objectives have been taken from the 2014 National Curriculum of England for Key Stage 1 and have been broken into smaller pieces and phrased as I can statements. The sheets can be printed off and laminated for display, as well as shared on an Interactive Whiteboard for lesson focuses during science investigations. A checklist has also been included for sharing and target setting with individual children.

Classification Chart/Tree

Classification Chart/Tree

I used this as a warmer - the children had to name my 6 nieces and nephews by using their pictures and the classification chart/decision tree. Once they understood how it worked I had them make their own classification chart based on identifying 6 chosen members of their class.

Practical Science: Reaction Rates and Fair Tests with Bottle Rockets KS2

Practical Science: Reaction Rates and Fair Tests with Bottle Rockets KS2

This resource was developed with Royal Society of Chemistry funding. Its original aim was to support Cub Scout leaders with the Scientist badge. However, it also works really well with KS2 pupils in school. The leaders notes contain a detailed plan for running the activity in class. It is recommended that you read these through and have a test run before doing this is school. You will also need to complete your own Risk Assessment. Its a really exciting hands-on experiment which pupils will be desperate to manipulate for themselves! Pupils will learn about a fair test, reaction rates, states of matter, forces

Experiment Planning Template

Experiment Planning Template

A simple planning document to help pupils to understand the independent and dependent variables in an experiment. A good tip: Ask pupils to mind map possible variables or give the pupils a list of possible variables along with the question you want the pupils to investigate and then give them this sheet!
