I'm looking for some advice on science unit 3b. I am an NQT about 2 embark on my 2nd half term. I'm in the process of planning my science for the half term but I seem to have all the objectives covered with weeks to spare. We have science all afternoon on a Wednesday so that will be 14 hourly sessions. I have planned the following: <u>Wk 1:</u> - (1st half) identifying prior knowledge/ learning the parts of a plant, labelling and writing about the job if each part. (2nd half) Celery demonstration to show children how the roots carry water, children to draw a picture of their observations and a brief explanation. <u>Wk 2:</u> - Introducing a science experiment, investigating how plants need water to grow. Children write about what we are going to do. What will we record? Plant the seeds. <u>Wk 3: -</u> (1st half) What happens if a plant has no light, discuss physical differences. Why does it need light to grow? (2nd half) How plants provide food for humans and animals/ food chains. <u>Wk 4: </u>- Record the results of our investigation started 2 weeks ago. Discuss results. This leaves me with 3 weeks and 6 hours to fill. EEEK!! I've checked the L.O's and I'm sure I have covered them all. Any ideas for things I may have missed or be able to expand on. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
