Our Science curriculum intends to nurture curiosity about the world around us and allows children to ask questions and develop the skills they need to answer them. Pupils will gain a body of knowledge which attempts to explain and interpret phenomena and experiences. We aim to equip our children with the scientific knowledge required to investigate problems and understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

From EYFS to Year 6, Children throughout the school are taught scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding in, wherever possible, a hands-on investigative way.  Children learn the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.  The science curriculum is organised to ensure coverage and progression, with learning revisited and extended to deepen and build understanding. Within science, children learn key subject vocabulary and have opportunities to reason, discuss and explore concepts, ethics and scientific developments. Trips and workshops are essential to enhance children’s scientific experiences and we ensure that all children have access to a scientific trip or visitor at least once a year.
