Our Science topic for term 5 2020 is Evolution and Inheritance

 

We will be learning about:

  • how living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago 
  •  that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents
  • identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.

Our Science topic for term 3 2020 is 'Living Things.'  

 

We will be learning about:

  • how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals

 

We will be able to give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics.

Term 2 2019 Science topic is: Electricity.

 

We will be learning about;

  • How the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in a circuit.

  • How to use the recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram.

  • How to compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches.

     

Do you know these circuit symbols?

Our science topic this term is: Light

 

We will be learning to:

  • Recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines.
  • Use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye.
  • Explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes.
  • Use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them.
