Focus Science: Individual Units

by Clive Davies
Focus Science: Individual Units



+ Description
These individual units aim to ensure that standards in writing and science are being improved by using exciting literature through science.

The units ensure that there is a huge focus on working scientifically as well as dealing with the specific science knowledge for each year group.

For example, in Year 4 the use of excellent quality text like 'The incredible book-eating boy' is central to the science unit dealing with the digestive system. In Year 3, the excellent book 'The street beneath my feet' is central to the science unit on 'rocks'.

The units help teachers to improve pupils' writing through science but still hold on to the statutory requirement for science and ensures that pupils' grammar, punctuation and vocabulary is being challenged. Each unit is a comprehensive scheme of work but allows teachers enough flexibility to add or replace certain activities.
