Resources for Year Five or Primary Six

The Ginn Science resources for Year Five comprise guidance for teachers, classroom resources, students’ books and assessment materials.

There are two types of teacher guidance, the lengthy Year Five Teachers’ Resource File and the briefer [link=//stem.org.uk/rx795]Essential Ginn Science: Guide to Classroom Management Year Five[/link] which reduces both the number of activities and the detail in which they are described in the resources file. There is also a Ginn Science INSET (IN-SErvice Training for teachers) which applies to all years in the primary school.

The classroom resources comprise skills support sheets and [link=//stem.org.uk/rx796]Activity Sheets[/link] for use by students in school and [link=//stem.org.uk/rx798]Homework Sheets[/link] for extending their investigations at home with the involvement of parents or carers.

Students’ books are provided to extend students’ knowledge and develop their scientific understanding.

Material for assessing students is included partly within the resource file and partly provided as separate [link=//stem.org.uk/rx79e]Assessment Booklets[/link]. There are also [link=//stem.org.uk/rx79f]National Assessment Sheets[/link] which are tied to the levels of attainment of the National Curriculum for England in the 1995 curriculum and the Scottish 5-14 guidelines.

Ginn Science is intended to be flexible enough to meet the requirements of different curricula within the countries of the UK. It gives most attention to the National Curriculum for England. The teachers’ resource files published after 1995 are explicitly related to the revised National Curriculum and the Scottish Guidelines for environmental studies 5-14. There are several charts in the resource files which enable cross-referencing to both curricula. Other materials – the students’ books and assessment booklets - were unaffected by the structural change brought about by the 1995 curriculum revision. Materials published early in 1997 relate the assessment in Ginn Science more closely to the 1995 National Curriculum level descriptions.
