During Science Week, the whole of KS2 took part in one science experiment, rainbow rain. We love our science, but we also know it can be a hard subject to resource, especially in the current climate. Therefore we have included some easy experiments you can have a go at home, for all ages! These are taken from the book, George’s Marvellous Experiments. After the experiment, you could ask your child; What worked well? What did they find out? What would they change?

If you are able to complete an experiment, we would love to know. You could send us photographs, you could write about what you did, what you found out, or even create a PowerPoint! Depending on who your science teacher is please send to either katie.eastwood@stbotolphs.co.uk or alicemain@stbotolphs.co.uk.

 

We have also attached a link for 10 minute STEM activities that you can do at home. Again please email us photographs etc.  We would love to see what you have been doing.

 

Thank you for the work we have already received. Keep a look out for it on this page!

 

Many thanks and stay safe!

Welcome to Science

 

Mrs Main and I are thrilled to be teaching KS2 science again this year and KS1 science will continue to be taught by their class teacher.

 

At St Botolphs, we offer the children high quality first-hand experiences which develop children’s natural curiosity. Scientific enquiry is at the heart of exciting and enriching Science lessons of biology, chemistry and physics and through this, children master both investigative and practical skills that underpin the development of scientific knowledge.

 

We encourage children to ask their own questions about the world around them and through a new carefully planned spiral curriculum, we develop the children’s own interests which helps to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.

 

The topics in KS1 that will be taught are below:

 

Year 1 -

Humans

Seasonal Changes

Everyday Materials

Living Things and their Habitats

Plants

Animals

 

Year 2 -

Living Things and Habitats

Materials

Working Scientifically

Uses of Everyday Materials

Plants

Animals including Humans

 

In Key Stage 2 we have written a new spiral curriculum this year. Below are the different areas that will be covered in each year group during the academic year, however they will not be taught in blocks, as the skills will be built upon throughout the year. 

 

Year 3 - 

Animals including Humans

Forces

Light

Rocks

Plants

Animals including Humans

 

Year 4 -

States of Matter

Electricity

Teeth

Sound

Living Things and their Habitats

 

Year 5 -

Properties and Changes of Materials

Earth and Space

All Living Things and their Habitats

Forces

Animals including Humans

 

Year 6 -

Light

Living Things and their Habitats

Animals including Humans

Evolution and Inheritance

Electricity

Evolution and Inheritance

 

We are very much looking forward to teaching our new spiral curriculum and we hope the children will enjoy it too. A new spiral curriculum for KS1 will be implemented in September 2020.
