As one of the core subjects in the National Curriculum, Science is often the focus of topic‑based work. However it is also taught as a discrete subject, where appropriate, to ensure that skills, knowledge and understanding are developed continuously. We are excited to be following the new national curriculum this year.
We seek to develop investigative skills through group work, whole class teaching and we teach children to plan investigations and explore for themselves. We encourage working scientifically through creative, investigative activities.
Progress in Science is monitored through regular assessment of the children's skills, knowledge and understanding.
