We follow the National Curriculum guidelines for the teaching of Science through our creative curriculum.
The National Curriculum for Science aims to ensure that all pupils:

• Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics

• 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.

• Are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

Working Scientifically is the continuous area of study in the National Curriculum for Science. It gives life and sustenance to learning new knowledge and developing understanding. It is the driving force of science learning, teaching and assessment. It builds on skills of questioning, fair testing, observing, exploring, pattern seeking and sorting and classifying.

Science lessons are delivered across all year groups from YR-Y6. We ensure that all lessons are stimulating and engaging for every type of learner and we offer opportunities for children to explore a wide range of equipment and resources.

We also link school educational visits to our Science curriculum to enhance the children’s learning and to give children the opportunity to explore Science in a new and exciting way.
