Science

Our Science curriculum provides the foundation for the understanding of the physical and biological aspects of the world. We use it as a bridge between many subjects so that it contributes to a broad and balanced, rigorous, relevant and enjoyable curriculum.

We aim to encourage all of our children to see themselves as scientists, by providing them with opportunities to work scientifically and to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. During lessons, they will carry out a range of scientific enquiries that will help them to answer the scientific questions they have about the world around them. In doing this, they will develop their skills of prediction, observing over time, pattern seeking, identifying, classifying, grouping, fair testing and drawing inference from evidence.

The Programmes of Study laid down in the National Curriculum, along with close liaison with schools in our pyramid and ongoing assessment, allow us to maintain continuity and progression across phases.
