Science is taught each term so that we cover the Science National Curriculum. Each year group has science units of study that will be covered in depth. The development of children’s experimental and investigative skills are of vital importance.
Children are encouraged to be independent and collaborative scientific investigators by their involvement in exciting practical investigations. Investigative work takes the form of: modelled, intermediate and independent investigations and the proportion of these skills vary between year groups.
The new curriculum also recognises the importance of a developing knowledge of scientific concepts. Our lessons incorporate both knowledge and investigative skills through a lively and creative curriculum.
