Science encompasses biology, chemistry and physics, which children learn through exploration, both through writing, experiments and testing within and outside the classroom.
Our Science curriculum enables children to learn about how Science is a part of our everyday lives, as well as how it has impacted our past and most certainly will impact our future. They gain an understanding of the processes of Science, such as scientific working, through investigation and exploration. They begin to test theories and stretch the boundaries of their knowledge. This encourages children to be both inquisitive and analytical.
The following topics are covered as part of our Science curriculum:
KS1: plants, animals (including humans), everyday materials, seasonal, living things and their habitats.
KS2: plants, animals (including humans), light, rocks, forces and magnets, states of matter, sound, electricity, properties and change of materials, earth and space, evolution and inheritance.
