Science Overview for Parents
Our Science Journey
Use our Science Education Provision Maps to see what your child will be learning as they move through school
We use knowledge organisers to help the children remember important vocabulary and information. You can use these to help your child at home.
*Early Years Foundation Stage have there own Knowledge Organisers that feed into our curriculum from Year 1.
We know that children construct their understanding of the world through experience. In order to make learning real, children need to explore, ask questions, and assess their understanding.
Science Bug has been crafted on a robust teaching and learning cycle that puts children and hands-on, active learning at its heart and ensures progression for all.
We believe that to instill scientific confidence in children and to inspire future generations of young scientists, we need to spark their imagination and fuel their curiosity with hands-on, experiential science.
Our Science Curriculum
A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Our children are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about events and things in the world around them. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge. Because science links direct practical experience with ideas, it can engage learners at many levels. Scientific method is about developing and evaluating explanations through experimental evidence and modelling.
Teaching and learning in science reflects our belief that children have a natural sense of awe and wonder in the world around them. We aim to provide the children with a science knowledge base, and encourage them to ask questions, make predictions and then to test.
Science is an exciting and relevant part of our creative curriculum which enables children to learn about, observe and explore the real world around them. The Science teaching in school actively encourages children to work both independently and with others in practical ways, developing secure subject knowledge, investigative skills and scientific vocabulary.
