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.

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.
