Science is taught through a mixture of cross-curricular topic work and discrete Science lessons to deliver the 2014 National Curriculum Programme of Study for Science in KS1 and KS2. In Class 1 we support children in the “Understanding World” area of learning and development (Statutory Framework for EYFS).
We aim to develop in pupils, curiosity, enjoyment, skills and a growing understanding of science knowledge, through an approach in which pupils raise questions and investigate the world in which they live. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
We feel it is vitally important to promote positive attitudes to science through a variety of teaching and learning styles whilst developing and embedding scientific enquiry, ‘Working Scientifically’ skills alongside knowledge and content based learning. Please see our long-term class plans for more details and specific year / termly topics.
