strand forces and magnets   British Science Week investigates 09.18.03.18 animals including humans  
focus push pull moving friction magnets magnetic   Exploration and Discovery' I am an animal! animals in general
activities what is a force? discuss and explore the actions we carry out every day  -  focus on pulling how do you change the motion of the bike when you are the cyclist? what is friction?  Can you explain it?   what can you remember about magnets?  Record your thoughts and keep them safe what is magnetic force?   exploring the outdoors:  watch seeds grow draw yourself and label as many of your features as you can think of as many different ways that animals move - try them out!
discuss and explore the actions we carry out every day  -  focus on pushing record our individual actions, using forces vocabulary and photos how can you make the remote car work?  What can you get it to do? carry out some everyday actions and think about what is happening and why? revisit horeshoe, bar, cylinder, ring, button magnets and match them up use iron filings to detect a magnet's magnetic field   exploring the outdoors:  Poo from the past orgnaise a message to go home to request photos of themselves at different ages/stages play 'Simon Says' with animal movements and/or animal names and remember how they move!
record our individual actions, using forces vocabulary and illustrations play 'Forces Bingo' find objects that roll when you push them different surfaces create different amounts of friction [powerpoint] explore what a magnet can do and create a record of your findings what sorts of materials are magnetic?  Are all metals magnetic?   exploring our homes:  Confusing cans discuss and note differences/similarities in themselves choose an animal to watch aclosely, in its home environment/habitat
explore how we can change the speed of the object we push   carry out an investigation as to how far on object will roll each time what do we wear to help make friction?  Look at the soles of each other's shoes have you a question you would like to find the answer to? take photos of magnetic and non-magnetic items in the classroom and school for a 'Magnetic Materials Bingo' board   exploring our homes: Squashed tomatoes discuss and note differences/similarities between themselves and a friend have you a question you would like to find the answer to?
explore how far different objects will go when we push them down a slope   see if you can both predict and make it happen using knowledge gained from the last 2 weeks visit different areas of school to see where different surfaces have been used and discuss why you think that has been done   play the game and test out the decisions to see who has the correct answers!   exploring the world:  Escape from the ice discuss and note differences/similarities between themselves and an adult in the class  
record a prediction before starting the exploration and revisit at the end to see how you got on             exploring the world:  Run to the Deep what do we have the same as other animals we know?  [skin, bones, blood, babies]    
                     
P5 finds a range of things that need pushing in the classroom finds a range of things that need pulling in the classroom investigate the effect of rubbing your hands together very fast   selects objects to use with a magnet       points to the main features on a person's face when asked  
  investigates trying to push/pull heavy objects on a range of suraces ie playground.hall floor - which is easier? investigates trying to push/pull heavy objects on a range of suraces ie playground.hall floor - which is easier? finds objects that roll if they push them   puts objects that stuck to the magnet in a group       points to the main features on a person's body when asked  
  with help, fills in simple chart to show their findings with help, fills in simple chart to show their findings                
  puts objects they have tested in a group                  
                     
P6 predicts an increase in speed if a wheeled obect is pushed harder finds a range of things in the classroom that we pull and push - door/chair says how they can stop something that moves from hurting them ie a door/car   shows an awareness that something always happens eg the paperclip will always stick to the magnet plays a magnetic fishing game     compares photos of themselves at different ages knows how familiar animals move
  finds a range of things in the classroom that we pull and push - door/chair   notes how they have to switch something on to make something move   tries to push together like poles on 2 magnets       recognises differences between themselves and their teacher plays Simon Says
  on a slope, pushes objects and notes which one move the furthest   notes how they can make a car move ie forwards/backwards/in circles   notes they cannot make 2 like poles stick together       recognises differences between themselves and a friend imitates the movements of animals
  on a slope, pushes objects and notes which one move the least   notes how they can make it stop             asks simple questions about an animal
                     
P7     investigates how far an object will roll notes the difference when trying to open a lid with wet hands and dry hands plays with a range of magnets photograph objects they have found that are magnetic     is aware of different ages of people describes an animal from a picture
      repeats action to see if result is the same finds items in school/home which help make friction ie bath mat/soles of shoes observes magnets pulling together describes a property of a magnetic object     sequences a series of 3 pictures showing human life cycle asks to see picture/video of animal not in their environment
      predicts how far a similar object will roll gives a simple reason why an object is made from a material asks how magnets work uses simple language to describe the action of a magnet ie sticks to     knows animals have skin names parts of an animal/fish eg fin/beak
      talks about how to stop the object rolling so far gives a simple reason why an object isn't  made from a material find things in the classroom that react to the magnet says what materials they think might be magnetic     knows animals have blood  
          knows that there are certain ways 2 magnets can stick together tests their theory using magnet     knows animals have bones  
            records simply materials they have found to be magnetic     knows animals have babies  
                     
P8                 names some parts of their body  
                     
Step 1                 names and labels the main parts of the face
