As a core subject, science has a high profile across our Federation and is taught weekly throughout the whole school year. In addition to this, guided by ideas from our Science Reps, we have regular science competitions and hold an annual science themed day.
To ensure that our children have secure science knowledge and understanding we teach science as a stand alone subject with relevant links made to other subjects when there is clear purpose for doing so.
Within science, children are taught and encouraged to ask questions, record observations and draw conclusions. Children experience a variety of practical investigations using an increasing amount of equipment and recording methods to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding. Developing children's knowledge of the different ways of working scientifically is key to our science curriculum and an integral part of every unit.

If you have any questions or would like some more information in the meantime, please call into school or email me.
