Science

Year 3 

Teeth - types and functions.
Healthy Eating - 5 food groups, healthy meals.
Helping plants grow - light, water, leaves and parts of plant (simple), function of roots AT1 – what affects growth Simple key classification (leaf shape and tree – Oaklands park)
Materials - absorbency, rigid, flexibility etc Rocks and soils – size of particles of soil and how to separate, drainage, permeability, hard/soft.
Forces - Magnets and springs, basic push/pull
Light and shadow – light sources & how this affects length of shadow formation of shadow, opaque, transparent, translucent. Evolution and Inheritance - Fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth many years ago. How fossils are formed. Pupils can be introduced to the work of paleontologists. 

Year 4 

Moving and growing - skeleton, muscles, basic body parts
Habitats - adaption of plants and animals, how suited to environment, feeding relationships, classification of animals - key
Keeping Warm - Insulation
Intro Solids & Liquids - Melting and Freezing(heating and cooling), Ice – water Chocolate Dissolving – salt and sugar Separation (focus)- sieving and filtration.
Forces - Friction, air resistance, gravity pushing/pulling (build on yr3) direction of force.
Electricity - Circuits and components, symbols conductors/ Insulators.
 

Year 5

Gases around us - 3 states of matter(build on yr4) measure of flow water cycle, condensation and evaporation.
Changing state - Reversible/Irreversible changes – build on year 4 (all states) but not from mixtures.
Keeping healthy - heart and place and function of organs in body (build on yr4), healthy diet (build on yr3),drugs/alcohol/smoking and importance of exercise(PSHE).
Life cycles – humans and animals (frogs, chickens, butterflies) and plants (seed dispersal, germination, pollination etc)
AT1 - what affects germ. Plant parts (including male/female) and function (build on yr3) Plants: seed dispersal.
Earth sun and moon - Within solar system, day and night, shadows and how change from sun(build on yr3), seasons, phases of moon.
Changing Sounds - how made by vibrations, through materials (insulators and conductors), pitch and volume, echoes.
 

Year 6

Interdependence and Adaption - (build on year 4).
Electricity - parallel and series putting within a context and relating to a project (build on year 4).
Forces in Action - water resistance, balanced forces (build on yr 3 and 4).
How we see - light (build on yr3 and 5)reflection and lines in straight line.
Evolution and Inheritance - Discuss the work of Charles Darwin on adaptation. Finding out about how cross breeding and selective breeding has led to improvements in the usefulness to humans of many plants and domestic animals. Give reasons why living things produce offspring of the same kind, but in many cases offspring are not identical with each other or with their parents.
