Science will be taught as a separate lesson but will be linked to our Topic work where appropriate.
We will encourage our pupils to be curious about natural phenomena and to be excited by the process of understanding the world around them. Key scientific terminology will be introduced each lesson and knowledge will be built upon throughout the school.
Pupils will be encouraged to work scientifically and will able to carry out simple tests and experiments using equipment and to gather and record data. Children will build on their knowledge of plants, animals including humans, materials, seasonal change, habitats, rocks, light, forces, states of matter, sound, electricity, earth and space and evolution and inheritance.
Visits by specialists such as the Planetarium alongside close links with local secondary schools will enhance the delivery of our science curriculum. We will also have identified reading books to link to our science curriculum to encourage further investigation and engagement.
