We believe that every child has the right to receive a high quality science education. We ensure that our curriculum is broad, balanced and interesting so that the children enjoy developing their knowledge, skills and understanding as a scientist.
Our Science Curriculum is organised into topics for each year group. These follow the year by year programmes of study outlined in the national curriculum. The topics are planned to ensure a balance of physics, chemistry and biology. We work together as a staff to ensure that our science curriculum provides continuity and progression throughout the school.
At FS2 (Reception) the following topics are covered: Going on a Journey, Percy the Park Keeper, Dinosaurs, Space, Growing and Ourselves.
At Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) the following topics are covered : Plants, Everyday Materials, Seasonal Changes, Animals, including Humans, Living things and their Habitats.
