Here are the experiences and outcomes that will be covered by P4/5 during term 2:

First Level

Second Level

Science:

Bundle 7

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 have contributed to discussions of current scientific news items to help develop my awareness of science. SCN 1-20a

I have contributed to discussions of current scientific news items to help develop my awareness of science.

SCN 1-20a

By observing and researching features of our solar system, I can use simple models to communicate my understanding of size, scale, time and relative motion within it. SCN 2-06a

Having explored the substances that make up Earth’s surface, I can compare some of their characteristics and uses. SCN 2-17a

Through research and discussion I have an appreciation of the contribution that individuals are making to scientific discovery and invention and the impact this has made on society. SCN 2-20a

I can report and comment on current scientific news items to develop my knowledge and understanding of topical science. SCN 2-20b

Technologies

Bundle 2 (inc. 9):

Construction

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

Having analysed how lifestyle can impact on the environment and Earth’s resources, I can make suggestions about how to live in a more sustainable way. TCH 2-02a

By applying my knowledge and skills of science and mathematics, I can engineer 3D objects which demonstrate strengthening, energy transfer and movement. TCH 2-12a

During practical activities and design challenges, I can estimate and measure using appropriate instruments and units. TCH 2-13a

Through discovery and imagination, I can develop and use problem solving strategies to construct models. TCH 2-14a

Having evaluated my work, I can adapt and improve, where appropriate, through trial and error or by using feedback. TCH 2-14b

Possible Significant Aspects of Learning for Assessment from Progression Framework:

Science:

  1. I can describe movements of the sun, moon and earth and link these to time. (1st)
  2. I can observe and record changes in the sun, moon and stars. (1st)
  1. I can use a model to describe the solar system. (2nd)
  2. I can describe a model of the earth’s structure. (2nd)
