  • The questions about variables are inaccurate - the Q asks which variable will change and which will be kept the same. In the mark scheme it says the material will be kept the same and the temperature will change. In fact, the material is the one that you will change (independent variable) and temperature of the potato is the one you will measure (dependent variable). The control variables might be size of potato and starting temperature and length of time between measurements. This sort of inaccuracy is exactly why primary teachers shy away from teaching the scientific method thoroughly! I will only use Q1-8 of this resource as a result.

  • Some good questions to assess children in year 5. Thanks.
    I must point out an error though - in the mark scheme it claims that dissolving salt is an irreversible change and making toast is a reversible change.
    Also I would like to ask about the questions based on 'independent, dependent and control variables'. I cannot find any advice from governement or education professions that suggests we should be using and assessing year 5 children on their understanding of these terms. If I have missed something can you please point me in the right direction? It seems incredibly harsh for 1 mark and I'm not sure it is appropriate for their age.
