The 2014 Science National Curriculum is followed from Years 1-6 and the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is followed in Nursery and Reception.
We aim to deliver an engaging science curriculum, which broadens our children’s scientific understanding of the world around them, through investigative learning. We aim to develop our children’s thirst for knowledge and understanding, and encourage their natural curiosity about the world around them. The core of our science curriculum is an enquiry led approach. The children will explore different aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics and deepen their knowledge of topics within these areas, through a variety of different enquiry types; including, observing over time, pattern seeking, identifying, classifying and grouping, comparative and fair tests and research; including using technology and investigating models and using secondary sources.
We do not use any one particular Science scheme; rather the curriculum content is delivered via well planned learning journeys, drawing on resources from a variety of sources; including, STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and Science Bug.
