Science magnetic or not magnetic for SEN, Reception and Early years.

3 worksheets for Science to discover magnetic and not magnetic items. Great to reinforce learning, use prediction and observation to record children's understanding and learning. Includes a fourth worksheet for higher ability level students to record findings by answering some simple questions, recapping their observations. Uses photographic items and clear pictures for items that are magnetic or not magnetic to enable easy recording. Get students to cut out and stick items, then record if they think it will be magnetic or not magnetic. Give them the items and a magnet and allow them to explore if their predictions were correct. For higher level students- encourage them to identify more obscure items, then predict if it will be magnetic or not magnetic, then allow them to discover if they were correct.

Stories and Poems to support Creative Science Key Stage 1 Pack

Stories and Poems to support Creative Science Key Stage 1 Pack

This resource has been designed to help bring creativity and the everyday science into your lessons by using stories and poems to enthuse your children. It is divided into year groups and can be purchased per year group, by key stages or as a whole school pack. Each year group has five detailed lesson plans with a story or poem for each of the topics. In years one and two where there are only four topics, an extra lesson has been added for one of the topics. Some of the lessons have more than one activity linked to the story and this can be used for an extended lesson or future lessons depending on how much time there is for the science lesson. This bundle contains Year 1 and Year 2 lessons . However it can be used in any country to support the use of poems and stories in science lessons. For those of you that are used to using stories and poems then this resource will hopefully expand your collection and for those that are new to teaching in this way then the resource will hopefully be the springboard to explore further poems and stories yourselves in the future. There may also be some new ideas for teaching science such as role plays and models that can be used in other science topics. A bonus of using the written word is the cross curricular links to other subjects such as Geography, History, DT and of course Literacy which are mentioned in the lesson plans when appropriate.

Hot Chocolate Experiment kindergarten / reception

Hot Chocolate Experiment kindergarten / reception

The children really enjoyed predicting whether hot, warm or cold water would dissolve the hot chocolate powder the quickest. We had guesses of all three for different reasons. We timed how long it took to dissolve and found out that hot water worked best because it has more energy and the molecules move faster. We watched a magic school bus episode about molecules and did one more experiment to visually show us how the molecules move faster in hot water. We also enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows :) Their independent maths task this week tied in really well. They used tweezers to put certain numbers of marshmallows onto their laminated numbered hot chocolate counting sheets. The hot chocolate counting sheets can be found here: https://www.themeasuredmom.com/marshmallow-math/
