Through the key stages, pupils observe, explore and ask questions about living things and life processes, materials and physical processes. They begin to work together to collect evidence to help them answer questions and to link this to simple scientific ideas. They evaluate evidence and consider whether tests or comparisons are fair.
They use reference materials to find out more about scientific ideas. They share their ideas and communicate them using scientific language, drawings, charts and tables.
2017 Year of Investigation
As part of our year of investigation, children will also be combining their scientific skills with maths and design technology to investigate a range of problems throughout the year.
