Our Science Curriculum is based on the National Curriculum for Key Stages One and Two, where pupils focus on a number of themes which are regularly revisited throughout the children’s time at school.
The topics covered are:
Animals including humans
Living things and their habitats
Forces and magnets
Earth and Space
Properties and changes of materials
States of matter
As the children move up through the school, their knowledge is deepened and built upon; progressing - for example - from learning to name key bones in the human skeleton in Year One; exploring the digestive system in Year Four and understanding how the circulatory system works in Year Six.
Alongside developing pupils’ knowledge, understanding and vocabulary, we also develop pupils’ ability to work scientifically. Pupils learn to plan, carry out, record and evaluate a wide range of investigations which are always fun and memorable!
