Schoolzone Evaluation Overview extract: "I found this software extremely useful. The pupils liked the animations, colours, sounds and pictures and were keen to attempt the activities. This software should prove invaluable in the classroom". Click here for the full evaluation A collection of colourful science screens to help children learn about basic scientific principles and wording. The self correcting screens have real speech and include activities on Life Processes, Physical Processes and Homes and Materials. Life Processes topics include alive and not alive, animals and plants, flowering plants and grouping living things; Physical Processes topics include pushing and pulling, changing shape, simple circuits and light and sound; Homes and Materials topics include house building, types of houses, animals homes and grouping common materials. Activities include labelling, ordering and sentence completion. The screens are self correcting where appropriate and many link to 'write about' screens and adaptable worksheets that can be used electronically or printed.

HOMES AND MATERIALS covers the following objectives of the National Curriculum for Science: SC3 Materials and their properties: 1a: to explore and recognise the similarities and differences between materials. 1b: to sort objects into groups on the basis of simple material properties. 1c: recognise and name common types of material. 1d: find out about the uses of a variety of materials. PHYSICAL PROCESSES covers the following objectives of the National Curriculum for Science: SC4 Physical processes: 1a: about everyday appliances that use electricity. 1b: about simple circuits involving batteries, bulbs and wires. 2a: to find out and describe going faster, going slower, changing direction. 2b: that both pushes and pulls are examples of forces. 2c: to recognise that when things slow down or change direction there is a cause. 3a: to identify different light sources. 3b: that darkness is the absence of light. 3c: there are many kinds of sound and sources of sound. 3d: that sounds travel from sources getting fainter as they do so and they are heard when they enter the ear.
