In Year 4, we cover all these aspects of science!

Sc4/1    Working Scientifically

  • asking relevant questions and using different types of scientific enquiries to answer them setting up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests
  • making systematic and careful observations and, where appropriate, taking accurate measurements using standard units, using a range of equipment, including thermometers and data loggers
  •  gathering, recording, classifying and presenting data in a variety of ways to help in answering questions
  •  recording findings using simple scientific language, drawings, labelled diagrams, keys, bar charts, and tables
  • reporting on findings from enquiries, including oral and written explanations, displays or presentations of results and conclusions
  • using results to draw simple conclusions, make predictions for new values, suggest improvements and raise further questions
  • identifying differences, similarities or changes related to simple scientific ideas and processes
  • using straightforward scientific evidence to answer questions or to support their findings.

Sc4/4.1    Sound

  •  identify how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating- 
  • recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear- We created string telephones to test this out
  •  find patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it
  • find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it.
  • recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases
