This term our Year 3 students have been exploring the topic of Science! During the term, students have been involved in conducting various science experiments and expanding their scientific knowledge, method and vocabulary. With each experiment students had to include the Scientific Method – Title, Aim and POE (Predict, Observe and Explain).
Before the experiment, students identified the aim and wrote a prediction of what might happen during the experiment? As a class we would discuss why students created their aim and why they think it will happen?
During the experiment, students wrote an observation. They were encouraged to both draw and write about what happened during the experiment using scientific vocabulary.
Finally, once students had conducted the experiment, they went on to write an explanation. As a class we brainstormed ideas on the scientific reasoning and what we learnt throughout the experiment.
Students have been engaged and displayed curiosity throughout all the experiments!
