APP primary science standards file: Ciaran (Year 6 low level 5)

Pupil profile

Ciaran is confident in practical work, and is developing his scientific thinking from a sound base in level 4 to a real impact on the more sophisticated criteria at level 5, across all assessment focuses.

  • Investigating light-reflecting surfaces

    This illustrated example of the pupil's work covers an investigation into a selection of materials in order to arrange them in their order of reflectivity

  • Crisps and healthy eating

    This illustrated example of the pupil's work covers an investigation into how much fat and salt different crisps contained in order to find out which are the healthiest.

  • Filtering

    This illustrated example of the pupil's work covers an experiment to get muddy water as close to ‘drinkable’ as possible, without using any further water.

  • Investigating air resistance

    This illustrated example of the pupil's work covers and investigation into how the size of a spinner affects its speed as it falls.

  • Investigating friction

    This illustrated example of the pupil's work covers a test of six different materials, each providing different amounts of friction, in which he had to devise his own fair test and record his results in a table.

  • Points of view

    This illustrated example of the pupil's work covers writing arguments for and against scientific research using animals.

  • Assessment summary

    This assessment summary demonstrates evidence of achievement against each of the science assessment focuses (AFs) and shows that the pupil is working at low level 5 in all areas.
