Science

Chidlren in Year 1 to Year 6 children are taught six Science units a year.

These units deliver a coherent, complete science curriculum which helps pupils to progress their knowledge, understanding and skills as they move through the school.

These skills include observing closely and performing simple tests in KS1 through to gathering and using data to set their own hypotheses in KS2. 

 

Alongside this, children develop a wide range of scientific vocabulary within each topic and use a range of practical STEAM activities to enthuse and broaden their learning experiences.
