Science

  • Science is taught as part of the STEAM curriculum.
  • Teachers plan to make meaningful cross curricular links with science, maths, engineering and art.
  • Purposeful science enquiry happens when children are motivated to answer a question that matters to them.
  • Learning is pupil led: children ask their own questions and use different types of enquiry to answer them.
  • Science enquiry is what children do in order to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
  • Enquiry should include: observing over time; identifying and classifying; pattern seeking; research and comparative and fair testing.
  • Enquiry skills are taught with clear progression.
  • Children are encouraged to use accurate scientific vocabulary.
  • Children’s progress is assessed in accordance with our assessment criteria after each topic.
