Nurture. Discover. Achieve.


As we have reached the end of the Science unit, we would like you to create a double page spread as part of your assessment. It is a non-chronological report but needs to be visually appealing and show a good understanding of the scientific vocabulary used in the last 12 lessons. You can use the Knowledge Organiser to help you. 

You need to demonstrate everything you have learned over the past three weeks-but as it is a chance to showcase what you have learned, try not to just copy from the work you have already done. 

Think back to the ones we did for Climate Zones in Geography. They were great! 


Here is a link to some examples of double page spreads in case you need some ideas about how to set them out.
