Given below are the experiences and outcomes from the Curriculum for Excellence that will be covered in our exciting new topic!

Early Level

First Level


I have experienced the wonder of looking at the vastness of the sky, and can recognise the sun, moon and stars and link them to daily patterns of life. SCN 0-06a

I have observed living things in the environment over time and am becoming aware of how they depend on each other. SCN 0-01a

By safely observing and recording the sun and moon at various times, I can describe their patterns of movement and changes over time. I can relate these to the length of a day, a month and a year.

SCN 1-06a

I can distinguish between living and non living things. I can sort living things into groups and explain my decisions.

SCN 1-01a (Nocturnal Animals)


Bundle 2:


Within and beyond my place of learning, I can reduce, re-use and recycle resources I use, to help care for the environment. TCH 0-02a

Within real and imaginary settings, I am developing my practical skills as I select and work with a range of materials, tools and software. TCH 0-12a

Through discovery, natural curiosity and imagination, I explore ways to construct models or solve problems.TCH 0-14a

Throughout all my learning, I take appropriate action to ensure conservation of materials and resources, considering the impact of my actions on the environment.TCH 1-02a

I explore materials, tools and software to discover what they can do and how I can use them to help solve problems and construct 3D objects which may have moving parts. TCH 1-12a

During practical activities and design challenges, I can estimate and measure using appropriate instruments and units. TCH 1-13a

Through discovery and imagination, I can develop and use problem solving strategies to construct models. TCH 1-14a

Having evaluated my work, I can adapt and improve, where appropriate, through trial and error or by using feedback. TCH 1-14b

Possible Significant Aspects of Learning for Assessment:


8. I can describe movements of the sun, moon and earth and link these to time.

9. I can observe and record changes in the sun, moon and stars.
