Science

Science education is important in developing the child’s understanding of the world around them through the various branches of science.

The science curriculum is exciting, hands-on based learning where children are given opportunities to find answers, discuss their ideas and develop their understanding of the world around them. In order to do this successfully they need to develop range of skills and knowledge including:

  • Scientific vocabulary
  • Applying their mathematical knowledge
  • Know how science is used in everyday life
  • Working scientifically
  • Understanding a fair test

It also teaches children a specific set of skills around exploring their ideas, finding answers and creating enquiring minds.

The science curriculum is currently taught in year groups in KS1 and on a 4 year rolling programme in KS2.
