Formative assessment shall help to promote learning and develop competence in the subject. The pupils demonstrate and develop competence in natural science in Years 1 and 2 when they use relevant natural-science terminology in exploration, play, talking and presenting. They also demonstrate and develop natural-science competence when they work with the subject in practical and exploratory ways. They also demonstrate and develop competence when they have a sense of wonder, ask questions and describe observations and experiences.
The teacher shall facilitate for pupil participation and stimulate their desire to learn by allowing the pupils to play, have a sense of wonder and use their senses in their work to learn the subject. The teacher shall facilitate for varied ways of working in nature and other learning arenas. The teacher and pupils shall engage in dialogue about their development in natural science. The pupils shall be given the opportunity to explore and experiment. With the competence the pupils have demonstrated as the starting point, they shall be given the opportunity to express what they believe they have achieved and what they believe they have improved on. The teacher shall provide guidance on further learning and adapt the teaching to enable the pupils to use the guidance provided to develop their knowledge on natural-science topics and their skills to ask questions and describe observations.
