In Science pupils are taught a curriculum which is both knowledge and skills based. We aim to develop the children’s ability to work scientifically throughout all the areas of study, making links with other subjects and giving children opportunities to apply their knowledge through their own investigations.
Our bespoke curriculum is designed around a rolling programme which allows the children to build on the skills learned each year and apply them in different contexts.
Pupils will develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
Pupils will develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
Pupils will be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
