Our science learning in Year 6 has been combined with our literacy work. The pupils have been researching microorganisms using both online and library resources. The biographies of some famous scientists have also been looked at.
We then asked the Year 6 students to combine this knowledge in a series of literacy factual reports. We wanted to see examples of scientific knowledge, but this needed to be presented with the correct punctuation using colons and semicolons. We also asked the pupils to think about the idea of presenting their work in a passive voice.
A couple of Year 6 scientists talk about their work in the recording below.
