In Science, we are developing our Scientific skills such as observing, predicting, investigating and proving through a range of areas of Science. Looking at our Learning Journey, we have learnt lots about plants and trees using good vocabulary such as deciduous and evergreen. Over the next term, we will be learning all about materials, light, animal groups and also how to make a basic electrical circuit. We will regularly revisit all of these areas to ensure we remember what we learn.
