Science

Science is taught using a topic-based approach delivered on a regular basis. We ensure that pupils are provided with a balance of Physics, Biology and Chemistry in order to cover the aspects of the National Curriculum and become competent scientists. Teachers plan and deliver lessons using a variety of teaching styles, allowing pupils to work collaboratively as well as harness their individual investigative skills.

In our delivery of a broad and balanced Science curriculum, we aim to:

  • develop pupils’ skills in working scientifically

  • deliver engaging and motivating activities to promote understanding

  • provide opportunity for pupils to develop their scientific enquiry through a ‘hands on’ learning approach

  • ensure that pupils have opportunity to complete working scientifically methods such as; fair testing, researching, sorting and classifying, observing over time, and pattern seeking

  • strengthen cross-curricular links and wider scientific skills
