Literacy teaching ideas
NATIOAL CURRICULUM LINKS
Through their work in science, "pupils are helped to understand major scientific ideas, to appreciate how these develop and contribute to technological change, and to recognise the cultural significance of science and its world-wide development." Pupils should be taught "about examples of things used in everyday life which are developed using science and technology".
Pupils should "consider the design and technology that exists both now and in the past and consider its uses and effects".
