OUR CURRENT TOPIC IS ......
Animals, their habitats and adaptations
In science we start each topic with a cold task that asks children for their prior knowledge on the topic. This informs us on what the children already know and allows the teacher to cater the lessons to the class and their subject knowledge. We then do a hot task at the end of the unit to see what they have learnt. Whilst teaching each unit we focus on developing specific scientific skills such as prediction and investigation around the subject knowledge.
