Science will be taught as a separate discrete lesson but will be linked to our Connected Curriculum topic work where appropriate. We will encourage our children to be curious about natural phenomena and be excited by the process of understanding the world around them. Key scientific terminology and concepts will be in introduced and built upon across the school. Pupils will be encouraged to work scientifically and will be able to carry out simple tests and experiments using equipment to gather and record data. Children will learn about plants, animals including humans, materials, habitats, rocks and soils, light, forces, states of matter, sounds, electricity, earth and space and evolution and inheritance. Visits such as the Planetarium and Bugtopia and dedicated science days will enhance the delivery of our curriculum.
