Our science curriculum has been sequenced to develop active citizens who grow to understand the world around them by investigating, questioning, testing and challenging it.
Pupils will come to understand that they live in a changing world where science research and findings are shared and discussed more than ever before. Science lessons allow them the opportunities to develop the language to discuss, explore, investigate and hypothesise whilst engaging in hands-on, practical experiences.
Pupils begin to explore the world during the Foundation stage in the area of ‘Understanding the World’. As they move into Key Stage 1 and then to Key Stage 2, key themes are built upon within the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics and over time, pupils’ knowledge and understanding is systematically developed.
Trips and visits enrich the science curriculum and allow pupils to have first-hand experiences of their learning as well as speak to experts in their fields.
