Part of a series of assessment sheets for KS1/2 produced by David
Warbrick. David explains: A single 2 sided A4 sheet for each of
the QCA units of work- there are 3 expected levels of outcome- Most
children will..... Some children will do better and...... Some
children will not do as well and....... The reverse of the sheet
contains the "small steps" the learning objectives for the scheme as
a means of recording the achievements of those children who didn't
achieve the expected outcomes.
You can find further details and the whole set of sheets at
David's website. (rtf files in zip archive)
Here's a useful resource that you can download from its original
source. A set of "I can" self assessment sheets for each of the
modules in the QCA Science scheme for years 3-6. Each one has three
sets of statements that match each of the 3 levels of expected
outcome in the QCA schemes. They are on the website of Graham
Jennings of Westdale School, Nottingham.
This zip archive contains a MS PowerPoint file called Forces. It has
lots of examples of pushes and pulls. It would make a good
discussion focus. This presentation was originally designed for use
with Y4 in a school for children with MLD/SLD but would be useful in
mainstream, too. Thanks to Mairi Eggar.
A database file produced by Mike Freedman. Contains a range of
information about the nine planets of the Solar System I'm afraid it
hasn't been updated since Pluto was downgroaded!). Choose either csv
file which can be read by most data handling programs or the ready
made TextEase Studio version.
This little program simulates the spread of disease through a
population. Probably more suitable for KS3/4. (This
was given to us and I think it is in the public domain. If you know
different please let us know!)
A data handling activity for Y6. Figures and graphs are given for
the brightness of bulbs as their batteries run down. Questions
are asked about the interpretation of the data. Thanks to Steve
Philp, who says, "Beware, the numbers are made up and bear no
relation to any real cells or light readings".
MS Excel thinks all time data are times of day or dates and so has
trouble adding or averaging time measurements. Here's a spreadsheet
that can. It totals and averages a series of times in minutes and
seconds (eg data from an experiment). The sheet will handle two sets
of data so you could, for instance, compare averages for boys and
girls. (by Mike Freedman)
