Science Part of Curriculum for Excellence A “Stand-alone” subject A “Stand-alone” subject, but with “cross cutting” links Providing relevant content, challenging experiences and no more duplication
New Science Titles Planet Earth Biological Systems Forces, electricity and waves Materials Topical Science
Science Biodiversity & Interdependence characteristics, survival, extinction, eco-systems, conservation, wildlife Energy sources & Sustainability Saving energy, reducing waste energy, renewable energy, Processes of the Planet Water cycle and water changes Space Size, scale time and motion of solar system Planet Earth
Science Body systems and cells Keeping the human body healthy Senses and body’s response to outside conditions Micro-organisms and the breakdown of some materials Inheritance Lifecycles of plants and animals Stages of development Characteristics of offspring Inherited/non-inherited characteristics Biological Systems
Forces Friction, air resistance, movement and motion Magnets, electrostatic forces, gravity Floating and sinking – buoyancy Electricity Drawing/planning circuits using symbols Making variety of circuits and explaining transfer of energy Vibrations & Waves Communication by animals Sound travel through air, water and other media Explore shadows and mixing coloured lights Forces, Electricity & Waves Science
Properties & Uses of Subjects Changing substances, mixtures, conditions, heating, dissolving etc. Earth’s Materials Comparing characteristics, comparing soils, rocks, earth’s surface. Chemical Change Water samples, pollution & conservation, chemical reactions and changes to different materials Materials
Topical Science What is happening today in science? In the papers? On the television? On the internet?
How can parents help? Science around the house…….
