CREATE Science Plants – Year 1 Planning Overview

CREATE Science Plants – Year 1 Planning Overview

C.R.E.A.T.E. Science is our brand-new project designed to inspire your children to be real scientists.

Our science curriculum is like no other, getting the children to adopt the roles of various scientists as they work their way through each area of the science curriculum.

This planning overview gives you curriculum links, vocabulary, resources and lesson outlines for 6 lessons on a plants unit for year 1. Children will adopt the role of a botanist to learn all about common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees.

pl Discover a world of science teaching resources, activities and lesson planning, linked directly with the National Curriculum to help you teach a full year of science.

Within the Science unit, there are 6 lessons to follow, all of which come with planning, activities and teaching aids. In addition to our 6 lesson packs, you will also find a role-play pack, knowledge organiser, display resources and assessment activity to use alongside this 6-week planning overview.

Where appropriate, the children will also learn about real-life people within the field of science. By the time children reach year 6, they will investigate and debate who they think has made the greatest contribution to the field of science.

Each science unit has an allocated science role. In this unit, children will adopt the role of a real-life botanist. They will learn about the skills needed for the role and have a go at these within practical lessons.

C.R.E.A.T.E. Science is all about working scientifically, using real skills and types of enquiry and this is reflected in our chosen project name:

Research, report and record
Ask relevant questions and analyse findings
Test in a fair way
Explore and Enquire

    This is such a super resource. Are you planning to make more Create science plans based on the topics in the national curriculum?

      Hi Laura
      As we speak, we are putting together our brand new CREATE Science page. We will be launching with plans for animals including humans, for all the age groups and building on our offerings throughout the year.
