Structure of each lesson
• Learning outcomes- clearly outlined
• Starter activity- Activities designed to review
the learning in the previous lesson
• Main activity- Supported by activities that
involve groupwork, discussion and practical
activities.
• Plenary- these are supported by a Sc1 bank of
• (available electronically). Some of the
questions can be used to support homework.

4
Lesson 1 Planning
• Learning outcomes
• Identify the different types of variables
• Use a sensible range and number of values for the
independent variable
• Recognise that variables cannot always be
controlled
• Plenary
• Variables card sort

5
Lesson 2 graphs
• Learning outcomes
• Label axis with correct variable
• Describe the relationship shown by a graph using
correct language
• Draw line of best fit
• Plenary
• Level 4 (Q6) , Level 5 (Q13), Level 7 (Q19)

6
Lesson 3 patterns in data
• Learning outcomes
• Describe and interpret patterns in data to
support the writing of a conclusion
• Plenary
• Level 4 (Q3), Level 5 (Q10), level 6 (Q16)

7
Lesson 4 Accuracy and reliability
• Recognise that a range of data collected can
affect the reliability of evidence
• Explain that repeating results checks reliability
• Identify when to repeat results
• Plenary
• Sentence builder

8
Lesson 5Evaluating a practical technique
• Identify odd looking results (anomalies)
• Explain possible reasons why anomalies exist
• Describe practical suggestions to improve the
procedure
• Decide whether the anomaly is an under- or over
estimate of what was expected
• Plenary
• Level 4 (Q4), Level 4 (Q2), Level 6 (14)

9
Lesson 6 What do we mean by evidence?
• Decide what evidence to collect
• Identify whether you might have sufficient data
and a suitable range
• Choose which evidence is suitable to support a
view
• Plenary
• Level 4 (Q5), Level 5 (Q11), Level 6 (Q15

10
Lesson 1
• Practical activities
• Investigating relation between angle of slide and
time take to roll down slide
• How to make the best cup of black tea
• Do the tallest pupils jump the furthest?

11
Lesson 2
• Practical activities
• To find out if different masses of salts take the
same time to dissolve in water?
• To find out if different colour plastic bags have
the same strength?

12
Lesson 3
• Practical activities
• Circus of activities
• Large to small beakers with a coloured liquid
that gets darker as size increases
• Candles of different heights with stop watches
set to different times to show how long they
would burn for
• Density blocks that are the same size but
labelled with different masses
• Different sized measuring cylinders with the same
volume of water in each

13
Lesson 4
• Practical activities
• Which measuring instrument? a range of
measuring cylinders,stop clocks,thermometers,meter
sticks,pH meter, universal indicator paper,
balances and newton meters
• Stretching a spring experiment

14
Lesson 5
• Practical activities
• Dissolving salt in water-DEMO.

15
Lesson 6
• Practical activities
• Dissolving sugar in water experiment
