KS2: Science: Sc1: Scientific Enquiry: 1 - Ideas and Evidence in Science

Ideas and evidence in science

1. Pupils should be taught:

  1. that science is about thinking creatively to try to explain how living and non-living things work, and to establish links between causes and effects [for example, Jenner's vaccination work]
  2. that it is important to test ideas using evidence from observation and measurement.


Pupils could use a Forum icon forum to discuss how living and non-living things work. How does a hot-air balloon fly? Through a forum the pupils could determine the key forces acting on the balloon.

Pupils could use a wiki icon wiki to co-construct knowledge regarding how living and non-living things work.
