We have taken the science skills ladder from the Welsh National Curriculum and have adapted these a little so that the children understand the descriptions. We have created purple cards of each skill with a choice of 3 sentences to choose from. This is one way the pupils assess themselves and peers at our school.
We are also in the process of introducing these on target boards for each pupil. The pupils colour the targets when they practice the skills.
