The curriculum

Science is a core subject of the National Curriculum. Children are naturally curious and fascinated by everything around them. The study of science helps them to raise answer questions and make sense of their world. Our aims are to develop a lifelong enjoyment of science, equip our pupils with sound knowledge. This will enable them to become confident learners who can think creatively, critically and have a desire to solve problems. The study of science also allows us to think about the importance of preserving our planet and discuss environmental issues that affect our everyday lives.

IN EYFS, the teaching of science involves guiding the children to make sense of their physical world and their community through exploring and observing. In Key Stages 1 and 2, we follow 2014 National Curriculum for Science. Through this we are able to provide an engaging programme of study to meet the needs of all pupils. The children will develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the three scientific strands – biology, chemistry and physics. Children are taught to work scientifically in all areas of scientific enquiry which include;

 

  • Asking relevant questions and using different types of scientific enquires to answer them
  • Setting up simple practical enquires, comparative and fair tests
  • Making systematic and careful observations, taking accurate measurements
  • Gathering, recording, classifying and presenting data in a variety of ways
  • Recording findings using simple scientific language, drawing, labelled diagrams, keys, bar charts and tables.
  • Reporting on findings from enquires, including oral and written explanations
  • Using results to draw simple conclusions, make predictions for new values, suggest improvements and raise further questions.
  • Identify differences or similarities related to simple scientific ideas and processes
