Mixed age science Y4/5

    Does anyone have an example of how to make mixed age science planning work? We will have 3/4, 4/5, and 5/6. I can't see how to plan without some children missing or repeating topics. We will teach English and maths by year groups with an extra teacher, history & geography can be a rolling program, but science??? Help!

    I don't know what you're using for planning science but you should be able to have a rolling programme for this as with history, geography etc. How do you ensure children don't miss or repeat topics in these subjects? Mixed age planning for maths is usually harder for people to get their heads around.

    We have been using Collins, but it is rather too much content, so we adapt. Do you mean a rolling programme so everyone does e.g. Light one year out of 4? Works okay for some things perhaps, but wouldn't others like evolution be hard for Y3? (I'm a bit new to KS2 so don't have a deep knowledge of the content).

    I was imagining a rolling programme for each of the classes. So year A and B for Y3/4 for example. This way topics can be allocated more appropriately.

    So far, so straightforward. But how do others fit 4/5 into the mix?
