Observing Over Time

Pupils identify and measure events and changes in living things, materials and physical process or events. These observations may take place over time spans of minutes or hours (e.g. puddles evaporating) up to several weeks or months (e.g. rearing young chicks).

Across the year groups, there are lesson suggestions for developing the skill of Observing over time from Year 1-11.
