All years from Y1 – Y6 teach one session of science per week and children have a dedicated science book. Our science curriculum follows the National Curriculum and is not linked to our Create-Explore-Discover work.
Year groups will study the following units:
Throughout the school year our children are encouraged to work scientifically. This strand encompasses the need for observations over time; comparative and fair testing; identifying, classifying and grouping and research using secondary sources and recording findings. Our children love devising and carrying out scientific investigations and we know that it all makes more sense to them when they are practically involved!
Where you see the same science unit names appearing in more than one year group, we ensure progression through our Knowledge, Skills and Understanding framework which outlines the skills and knowledge expected in each year. Our Science Subject Lead also identifies the core content and supports year groups with the delivery of ‘Sticky Knowledge’ quizzes to monitor progress.
We are always keen for our pupils to see where study could take them. If you have studied and work in the sciences – and would be willing to come into school to talk to classes or small groups about your work – please do contact the school office via email on firstname.lastname@example.org We would love to hear from you!
