The National Curriculum for Science places emphasis on knowledge and on the development of scientific skills across the three areas of Chemistry, Physics and Biology. Learning is planned to include all elements of this and practical investigations and discoveries are built in to the weekly lessons. Children are encouraged to explore, discover and question within their lessons.
Our science curriculum is not seen in isolation. Opportunities are provided within a cross-curricular framework in order to maximise learning and to transfer knowledge and skills from one area of the curriculum to another, especially in Key Stage 1. We aim to foster positive attitudes in science by ensuring that work is both enjoyable and relevant. Some of the planning and learning will be purely science based in order to focus on the delivery of specific scientific knowledge.
