Science at Southglade


We love science here at Southglade.  We learn through practical, 'hands on' work, developing our scientific skills and knowledge across a range of areas.


Some of the things we learn about include:


Year 1 - Naming plants and animals, seasonal changes and types of materials everyday objects are made from.


Year 2 - How plants grow, crating simple electrical circuits, animal habitats and how everyday materials are used.


Year 3 - human digestion and teeth, rocks and their properties, sound, light, forces and magnets.


Year 4 - Living things and their environments, anatomy and growth of plants, states of matter and electricity.


Year 5 - Life cycles and reproduction of mammals, amphibians and birds, properties of materials (including their solubility, transparency and conductivity), reversible and irreversible changes, space and forces including gravity.


Year 6 - Living things and their habitats, animal and plant classification, the human circulatory system, evolution and adaptation, investigations involving electricity.
