At Brandling, we deliver dual objective lessons which have a focus on a scientific concept and an objective that develops a key skill. The key skills include the following:
- Explaining science
- Designing Experiments
- Data, Tables and Graphs
- Drawing Conclusions
Throughout years 1-6 the children develop the key skills in a range of science topics such as animals, plants and materials.
Year 1 developing their explaining skills through a seasons lesson on Autumn.
Year 3 developing their designing experiments skills through a air resistance lesson.
Year 4 developing their concluding skills through an electricity lesson.
