Objectives To consider the responsibility of the Science Co-ordinator in terms of progression To consider opportunities for progression within each strand of Sc4 using the QCA SoW for Science as a model To consider assessment opportunities
Issues It is the responsibility of the co-ordinator to ensure coverage and progression through each Key Stage When using the QCA SoW progression in some topic areas is not straightforward and sometimes year groups miss out altogether Assessment should be an integral part of the scheme of work in order for the pupils to receive an appropriate learning experience
Assessment Records of pupil attainment should be kept by each teacher and passed on as the children move up Assessment for Learning strategies as well as assessment of learning should be an integral part of school assessment Sc1 skills should be taught as an ongoing process and assessed independently – not just whole investigations
Teaching enquiry skills Emphasis is on the teaching of skills within QCA units An assessment point should only include those elements that have been specifically taught Records of pupil attainment for each element should be kept – this will help inform future emphasis and planning Certain topic areas lend themselves to specific areas of emphasis – some flexibility to change this providing there is an overall balance
