Science

There is a weekly lesson of Science, which is often theme based. Children will follow the National Curriculum coverage for each year group and, within these lessons, be expected to cover the skills of working scientifically. The Science Curriculum aims to give the children more knowledge and skills to develop their scientific ideas. We do this by providing opportunities for children to observe, to ask questions, to suggest reasons and to carry out investigations in a wide variety of situations. The new national curriculum for Science aims 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 enquires 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
