Key Stage 2 Science
The key focus of Science teaching in KS2 is to enable pupils to broaden their scientific view of the world around them. They can achieve this by talking about, testing and developing ideas about everyday phenomena, exploring and by beginning to develop their ideas about functions, interactions and relationships. Children will be able to ask their own questions about what they observe and make decisions about the type of scientific enquiry that will give them the best answer. This includes observing changes over time, grouping and classifying things, noticing patterns and carrying out comparative and fair tests. They will be able to draw simple conclusions, using scientific language, talking and writing about what they have found out.
