  • engagement and relevance to the pupils;
  • opportunities for children to hone the generic skills of collaboration, independence, research, and reflection;
  • pupils to regularly employ the key scientific skills of making predictions; planning experiments; making observations; taking measurements, presenting data and drawing conclusions based on the results;  discussing the limitations of their empirical findings; and conduct experiments with due regard for safety;
  • the acquisition of the scientific knowledge and skills stipulated in the National Curriculum;
