    Science



    Our curriculum for science aims to provide the foundations for understanding the natural and humanly constructed world by equipping pupils with the scientific knowledge and language required to understand the uses and implications of science today and for the future.   All pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, method, processes and uses of science.  Pupils are encouraged to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity alongside building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts.  As pupils move through the school, they are taught to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes.

    Pupils are provided with a wealth of experience as they progress through the school which enable them to build on their knowledge, skills and understanding of scientific processes such as: questioning, observing, grouping, classifying, comparing, communicating, testing and evaluating.

    Lessons in Key Stage One  are taught using a cross-curricular approach, although some skills may be taught discretely should they not link to the cross curricular topics being taught. Topics covered include: Animals, including humans; use of everyday materials and seasonal changes.

    In Key Stage Two, all skills are taught discretely with cross-curricular links as appropriate. Topics covered include: Forces and magnets; Living things and their habitats; Earth and Space, Animals, including humans and Evolution and inheritance
