Purpose of study: A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world's future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
Fabulous home learning! - 'My Buzzer and Light Game using a parallel circuit'
For my learning I worked with my brother and mum to create this game. When you switch it on, the game is to use the 'wand' and make it round the course without touching the wire. If you do, the buzzer goes off with the light and you have to start again!”
