The aim of our science curriculum is that all children will develop the traits necessary to become ‘Scientists’.  These are outlined below:

  • Think independently and raise questions about working scientifically and the knowledge and skills that it brings.
  • Are confident and competent in the full range of practical skills, taking the initiative in, for example, planning and carrying out scientific investigations.
  • Demonstrate excellent scientific knowledge and understanding in written and verbal explanations, solving challenging problems and reporting scientific findings.
  • Show high levels of originality, imagination or innovation in the application of skills.
  • Undertake practical work in a variety of contexts, including fieldwork.
  • Passionate about science and its application in past, present and future technologies.

Our Changing World is a unit of work that is looked at each year and monitors the changes in the environment around school. Additionally, it also looks at the classification of plants/animals/habitats. Regular visits to this unit will be made throughout the year (approximately once a term). 

You can find our Science Curriculum overview document at the bottom of this page, which will tell you what each year group will be learning in Science each term. Our Science Policy can also be found at the bottom of this page.
