Something to keep in mind Follow Your Curiosity I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.
Perseverance is Priceless “It's not that I'm so smart; it's just that I stay with problems longer.”
The Imagination is Powerful “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.” “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.” Are you exercising your “imagination muscles” daily, don’t let something as powerful as your imagination lie dormant lie dormant.
Make Mistakes Discover the power of making mistakes. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, if you want to succeed, triple the amount of mistakes that you make.
Knowledge Comes From Experience “Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.” You can discuss a task, but discussion will only give you a philosophical understanding of it; you must experience the task first hand to “know it.”
The revised national curriculum for science September 2014
KS 1 PoS: Knowledge and understanding Basic structures and simple classification of common plants and animals (year 1) Life processes, including growth, reproduction and feeding, and growing plants (year 2) Habitats, including food chains(year 2) Simple physical properties of everyday materials in relation to their uses (year 2) Sources of light (year 1) Night and day, and the movement of the Sun across the sky(year 1) Forces that make things move, speed up and slow down, and change shape. (year 2) Science biographies, for example, Charles Darwin
Science skills In Year 1 and Year 2, ‘working scientifically’ includes aspects of: Observing closely using simple equipment Performing simple tests Identifying and classifying Recording findings in various formats. Ensure pupils read and write scientific vocabulary, consistent with their phonic knowledge at Key Stage 1.
‘Working scientifically’ is to be delivered through the teaching of substantive subject content, and is not to be taught separately as content in its own right.
Light Pupils should be taught to: identify and name a variety of sources of light that we can see with our eyes, including electric lights, flames and the Sun explain that darkness is the absence of light compare the variety of sources of light, using simple comparisons, comparative vocabulary and superlative vocabulary describe the features of day and night, including changes in light and temperature describe the movement of the Sun across the sky during the day.
What are the changes in the other year groups? In groups be creative and summarise the main content of the year group highlighting the changes, giving an example of how it might be taught Share your outcome with the of the class
discussion What do you think? What are the implications for you and your school?
Gaseous exchange and lung structure Inheritance and evolution – fossils Electrostatics Electricity Forces gravity in particular Changing materials – irreversible changes States of matter Electromagnetic spectrum and light
