In KS1, we assess children’s learning in Science through ‘I can’ statements. Please click the link below to view year one and year 2 I can statements.

Year 1 Science assessment 2021 – 2022

Year 2 Science assessment 2021 – 2022

Last year, the children at DCINS participated in The Great Science Share focusing on the theme for 2021 ‘Climate emergency’. This was such a success that this Summer, we are taking part in The Great Science Share again. We have spent a week focusing on the topic ‘Climate emergency’ and across the school we have been learning about the ways that humans are contributing towards climate change. In early years, children learnt all about the melting on polar ice caps through a story about a polar bear in danger. Year 1 children focused on plastic pollution. The children in year 2 learnt about ghost nets and the problems these cause for the creatures in the ocean and their habitat. The children planned and conducted experiments based around their learning. They created posters to share information and also large scales pieces of art work. The children of DCINS have become very knowledgeable around climate change and are ambitious and eager to make a change!

During the Summer term, the whole school are focusing on their Science learning. As part of this, we have all been taking part in the ’30 days wild’ challenge set by The Wildlife Trust. Take a look at some of our outdoor learning.
