Science Home Learning Activities
As we are unable to be in school at this time, please take a look at the Resource of the Day below, I have attached some useful resources that will support your child's learning at home. I will update this page regularly with some brilliant resources, web pages and ideas to do at home.
Two amazing websites to use are: https://www.stem.org.uk/ or https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize
Home Learning and Being Outside
Science is taught the best when being outside and looking at real life scenarios. I have attached a couple of photos below that I have been doing with my daughter and the discussion around it has the biggest influence. For example:If the shadow is in front, where will the sun be? Why do you think that is? Do you think we would find worms in trees? Tell me about its body? Tell me about its habitat?
We can relate anything to science so have some fun with it!
Resource of the Day - Week 4
Look at Khadija investigating solids, liquids and gases at home. All you need is baking powder, vinegar and a balloon! Super work Khadija!
Resource of the Day
Do try this at home Resources - These are so much fun using everyday objects at home. Have a go, maybe you can email photos of you completing them! Always ask an adult first!
Welcome to the Science Page!
In an ever changing society, we understand that we are here to encourage and inspire our children to become Stem ambassadors of the future. Here, at SMSJ, we endeavour to provide our young scientists a broad, challenging, engaging science curriculum which we adapt continuously to meet the needs of our rapidly changing environment. We are committed to ensuring our children show resilience and passion by providing them with practical investigations to encourage them to think in different ways.
Science is taught through a bespoke scheme of work which has been tailored to suit the needs of the learners of SMSJ incorporating all the national curriculum objectives. It is a topic based approach to learning and carefully planned to inspire and challenge all learners. We endeavour to provide our children with opportunities to learn through their own curiosity. We do this by giving them the opportunities to learn practically, through writing and also using their oracy skills. We also like to think deeper by using 'What if' questions for every lesson. We are a Science loving school and understand we may never find an answer to a scientific enquiry but we will have fun trying!
Please find each year group's topics attached.
If you have any questions or queries regarding Science, please see Miss O'Toole.
At SMSJ, we believe that exploration and curiosity is an integral part of Science and enables children to make sense of the world around them. We provide stimulating, child focused opportunities for the children to learn Science through practical investigations. We found, it allows children to use their oracy skills to explore and to question the mysteries that Science has to offer.
Working Scientifically is carried out throughout every Science lesson and the 5 ways of working scientifically are:
- Classification and Identification
- Carrying out a fair test
- Observing over time
- Pattern Seeking
- Using secondary sources of information
