Science is delivered as a separate subject in both Key Stage One and Two. A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding and exploring the world. The subject is taught using the National Curriculum objectives to provide essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.
The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries.
- Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
- Are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the use of Science in real life.
Our Science curriculum incorporates all areas of scientific understanding and knowledge as well as many opportunities to see science in a practical sense through experiments (teacher led) and investigations (pupil led).
In addition to our weekly timetabled Science lessons, children explore and take part in writing up science investigations as a cross-curricular Literacy topic each term.
Every year we take part in a range of activities, including National Science Week, to promote a love of Science to our pupils and immerse them in a cross curricular, Science focused experience.
Our Science programme of study meets all the National Curriculum requirements.
