Working scientifically

Part of the national science curriculum is workings scientifically. This includes 5 key strands of working scientifically to develop key skills in thinking logically, questioning, planning and carrying out investigations and drawing conclusions. 

The 5 strands of working scientifically are:

Pattern seeking

Sorting and Classifying

Fair testing (or controlling variables)

Observation over time

Research using secondary sources.


Over the course of the year, every class completes several of each type of working scientifically to ensure that all the skills are developed and secured.
