Our science curriculum is designed to enable children to grasp a solid understanding of life processes (biology), materials (chemistry) and physical processes (physics) by applying the skills of exploring, observing, grouping, classifying, questioning, researching, planning, testing, measuring, communicating and evaluating. As a result, our pupils are learning to work as real scientists. We follow The Rising Stars Switched On Science Scheme. This scheme provides full coverage of the Science National Curriculum, providing effective progression over time through the knowledge about things and the disciplinary knowledge of how to do things scientifically, that children develop. The scheme is adapted to meet the needs of our learners, while providing detailed background knowledge for the teacher to draw from.
Children are given access to ideas and ways of working scientifically in a range of contexts, providing appropriate repetition and reinforcement to help support them to remember over time.
Our units of work have a strong focus on practical exploration and practical learning that builds on what children have been taught before.
During Science Week we also provide an additional set of enrichment units consolidating scientific enquiry skills:
