End of Year Expectations/ I Can Statements

At Mount Carmel, we encourage children to self-assess their own science knowledge and skills. Below are links for each year group in the form of I can statements. Here you will see the topics to be covered and what children will be expected to achieve by the end of each academic year.

Working Scientifically 

In addition to topics covered, a large part of the national curriculum for science is working scientifically. This means equipping children with the skills needed for scientific enquiry, for example, thinking logically, questioning, planning/carrying out investigations and drawing conclusions. Included in this area of learning are the following five strands:

Observing over time

Pattern Seeking

Identifying, Classifying and Grouping

Comparitive and Fair Testing (controlled investigations)

Researching using secondary sources


Please click on the link for examples of the types of questions we use in school to enable children to develop these skills.
