Experiments

Investigations
Children raise scientific questions and use their skills and knowledge to plan work to answer these questions e.g. which magnet is strongest?
 
IT
Computers are used to collect and store information from experiments. They're also used to simulate real and imaginary situations.  We have digital microscopes to observe and record many phenomena as well as data loggers to record the physical environment.
 
Observation
Children are taught to look closely, to measure and record their observations.
 
Communication
Children learn to present their work clearly in a variety of ways - using the correct terms.
 
Health and Safety
Children learn how to work safely and prevent accidents happening.
