The yellow highlighted goals are the goals I chose
- Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways.
- Changes to materials can be reversible, such as melting, freezing, evaporating; or irreversible, such as burning and rusting.
- Science involves testing predictions by gathering data and using evidence to develop explanations of events and phenomena.
Yr 5 & 6:
- With guidance, pose questions to clarify practical problems or inform a scientific investigation, and predict what the findings of an investigation might be.
- With guidance, plan appropriate investigation methods to answer questions or solve problems.
- Use equipment and materials safely, identifying potential risks.
- Decide which variable should be changed and measured in fair tests and accurately observe, measure and record data, using digital technologies as appropriate.
- Suggest improvements to the methods used to investigate a question or solve a problem.
- Construct and use a range of representations, including tables and graphs, to represent and describe observations, patterns or relationships in data using digital technologies as appropriate.
- Compare data with predictions and use as evidence in developing explanations.
- Communicate ideas, explanations and processes in a variety of ways, including multi-modal texts .
- Use strategies to help me read and understand scientific texts that use tier 3 scientific language.
- Take notes on my reading that will help me create a reflection or summary and when I am creating explanations for observations in experiments.
- Create scientific explanations and lab reports that follow a conventional outline and that clearly communicate my understanding.
