Synopsis

Scientific Enquiry Activity Pack Practical Tasks for Years 5 and 6 by John Stringer

The Standard Attainment Tasks in science are putting greater emphasis on the management and interpretation of scientific enquiry. This set of 20 double-sided cards, illustrated in full colour, will enable children in Years 5 and 6 to manage practical tasks from the QCA Scheme of Work for science. Each activity is designed to help children develop and practise a key science skill, such as: making and repeating observations; suggesting explanations in terms of knowledge; recognising patterns in data; planning a whole investigation; representing data in line graphs; and deciding whether evidence supports prediction. The pack has been carefully planned to reflect the full range of skills, and there is an example from each unit of the scheme of work for Years 5 and 6. The activities are aimed at improving children's performance in scientific enquiry, helping children to demonstrate what they know and understand. Based on successful classroom practice, they are fully supported, with helpful hints on what to do when in difficulty and challenging advice on extending their work when all is going well.
