    I am doing some research for my BA Primary Education at Oxford Brookes and would like some opinions on which parts of working scientifically for LKS2 that you use find useful and actively implement in your practice and which parts you find much more challenging. They are as follows:
    LKS2 Working Scientifically

    During years 3 and 4, pupils should be taught to use the following practical scientific methods, processes and skills through the teaching of the programme of study content:

    · 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.
