In our science work, we cover all aspects of the National Curriculum and, where possible, it is linked with our topic work to further inspire and motivate pupils. Science is taught through a wide range of activities so children can develop the practical skills and academic knowledge they need in order to become scientific thinkers and learners. We believe that exploration and investigation are essential elements of all science work that children can relate to all aspects of their lives – at home and at school.
We aim to ensure that all pupils:
develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
Please view the attached Curriculum Maps to gain further insight into the National Curriculum Expectations and topics taught throughout the academic year in this subject.
