Science Whole School Overview

In Science, children will be expected to develop their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. They will also develop their understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries. This will help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. In addition, we will also ensure that children are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

We have a long term plan for all subjects across school (see above) including Science, ensuring that we are delivering a broad and balanced and skills based curriculum that makes learning fun, creative and raises standards. This also ensure we are meeting National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements.  It’s rooted in a proven pedagogy based on how children learn best. At its heart is the principle that every child deserves a rich, fun, engaging and broad learning experience. The curriculum nurtures engagement, curiosity and innovation, brings learning to life in meaningful ways. Further details of the aims of each of the foundation subjects are detailed below.
