Presentation Transcript
independent study task follow up
Independent Study Task follow up
  • Read Harlen and Qualter(2009) Chapters 14, 16
  • Make notes. What might you look for in school as evidence of children’s skill use?
  • Use this writing frame to complete an entry in your reflective journal.
  • Review your understanding of your own science skills.
  • Are there any that you find more difficult to use / observe in others?
  • What strategies have you to address any concerns?

learning intentions
Learning Intentions
  • Compare and evaluate a range of ways to organise practical science activities in the classroom.
  • Through practical activity analyse the benefits and drawbacks of teaching skills of scientific enquiry.
  • Consider a range of resources as creative starting points for science enquiry.
  • To use and consider ICT to support data collection and interpretation.

investigation shipwrecked
Investigation – Shipwrecked!

This investigation undertaken as part of National Science Week (2008)*

School Y3/4 class undertaking work on The Tudors and a recent visit to The Mary Rose.

  • Cross-curricular links with History, ICT and Maths.
  • Opportunities for LOtC – school trip

*(Tyson, S. (2009) “Shipwrecked in Science Week 2008!” Primary Science 106, Jan/Feb 2009. Hatfield: ASE)

investigation shipwrecked1
Investigation – Shipwrecked!
  • Children discussed who would be on board the Mary Rose when it sank and what might have affected whether the person survived or not.

people on board the mary rose
People on board the Mary Rose
  • Cabin boy – poorly dressed in rags;
  • Fat, rich merchant – well dressed in layers of clothing;
  • Sailor – thin layer of clothing;
  • Rich lady / gentleman – lots of layers of very rich fabric;
  • Captain – layers with outer clothing made of waterproof fabric.

Core 1 Science 2012 KP

In groups of 4 – 6 develop an hypothesis as to what might have affected survival rates on board the Mary Rose when it sank.
  • Plan and carry out an investigation to test your hypothesis for your designated person from the ship – you may wish to use a planning board.
  • You will need to use a datalogger.
  • Be prepared to feedback your ideas, difficulties, evaluation.
  • Don’t forget your risk assessment!

Core 1 Science 2012 KP

  • Which passenger do you think would have remained the warmest and which the coldest?

conclusion and evaluation
Conclusion and Evaluation
  • What have you found out?
  • How would you organise this activity with children?
  • Consider the enquiry skills used in this session.
  • Implications / issues for teaching?
  • The role of ICT to support the teaching and learning of Science.

  • Reflect on the different strategies and ways that the teacher in the video clip has decided to use to organise practical work in primary classrooms.
  • Have you seen any of these methods?
  • Any comments?

Independent Study Tasks
  • Find a reference to grouping in science. What are the implications for your practice? What might you observe and evaluate in school?

Please bring notes to next taught session

Now - place your notes in your Science file / portfolio.

  • Read Harlen and Qualter (2009) Ch 17 - How might you support children in assessing their work in science?

Use this writing frame to complete an entry in your reflective journal:

What implications for your teaching can you note from today’s session?

Core 1 Science 2012 KP

ReminderWEEK 12 Student directed learning task
  • In small groups (3-4 students) review your understanding of ONE Science Skill.
  • Prepare a 5 minute Powerpoint presentation for the rest of the class as if you were a teacher addressing parents/carers in the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 or 2.
  • How will you help parents to understand the importance of this skill?
  • What type of activities might you suggest / illustrate to develop this skill?
  • How can adults recognise this skill in use?
  • What is the adult’s role in nurturing and enhancing this skill?
  • Prepare an A4 handout for the class (this could be your Powerpoints with notes) – upload this onto the LN in Week 12.
