Science

Autumn Term

Our first topic is aniamls including humans.  In this topic we will be looking at:

  • basic parts of the digestive system in humans.
  • knowing that the digestive system digests the food eaten and (with oxygen) gives the body energy
  • identifying the simple functions of the teeth and different types of teeth in humans
  • knowing the types of teeth including milk and permanent teeth; incisors, canines and molars.
  • constructing and interpret a variety of food chains, identifying producers, predators and prey.

 

Our second topic is living things and their habitats.  In this topic we will be looking at:

  • recognising that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways
  • exploring and using classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment
  • recognising that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.

 

Spring Term

Our first topic is electricity.  In this topic we will be learning to:

 

  • identify common appliances that run on electricity
  • construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers
  • identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery
  • recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit
  • recognise some common conductors and insulators, and associate metals with being good conductors.

 

Our second topic is sound.  In this topic we will be learning to:

  • identify how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating
  • recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear
  • find patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it
  • find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it
  • recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases.

 

 

Summer Term

Our topic is states of matter.  In this topic we will be learning to:

  • sort materials according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases
  • explain that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C)
  • identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle.
