In science, we implement an inclusive curriculum that meets the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum.

It is timetabled for 2 hours per week in Key stage 2 and 1 hour per week in Key stage 1.

We have carefully sequenced the curriculum to ensure that progression is made year on year.

The curriculum overview document shows progression between year groups based on the 3 strands of science: Chemistry, Biology and Physics. 

Working Scientifically skills are explicit in lessons to ensure these skills are being developed throughout the children’s school career, and new vocabulary and challenging concepts are introduced. Through careful planning, we involve problem solving opportunities, allowing children to find out for themselves how to answer questions in a variety of practical means. Children are encouraged to ask their own questions and be given appropriate equipment to use their scientific skills to discover the answers.

At the beginning of each science lesson, children demonstrate their prior knowledge, which informs planning and teaching. A series of stimulating lessons are planned, with clear knowledge and skills -based learning objectives and subject-specific vocabulary. Post-learning tasks are planned to demonstrate progress, knowledge and understanding. Teachers assess learning in science against knowledge-based and skill-based learning objectives.

Our curriculum is delivered through highly effective ‘quality first teaching’. Enrichment opportunities, including outdoor learning, inspirational visitors and exciting educational visits, provide our children with rich experiences and enhance teaching, learning and knowledge.

We base our curriculum on a scheme by Grammasaurus but we adapt the scheme to suit our learners.
