Year 5 Science Posters/Revision Sheets

Year 5 Science Posters/Revision Sheets

This is a collection of five posters to reinforce Science objectives in year 5. Each beautifully designed poster is packed full of information and can be either used for revision or as part of a display in your classroom. These are a perfect partner for my extremely popular, and Tes recommended, Science Assessments. Year 5 Science Assessments Objectives covered: Describe the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird Describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals Describe the changes as humans develop to old age Compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets Know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution Use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating Give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic Demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes Explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda Describe the movement of the Earth and other planets relative to the sun in the solar system Describe the movement of the moon relative to the Earth Describe the sun, Earth and moon as approximately spherical bodies Use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun cross the sky Explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object Identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces Recognise that some mechanisms including levers, pulleys and gears allow a smaller force to have a greater effect

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.
