In order for all children to achieve their full potential and to aim for our school vision of ‘Excellence, Enjoyment and Achievement’ - Flying high- Soar like Eagles, we have developed a Science scheme of work which enables children to develop their Scientific knowledge and understanding to prepare them for their next phase of their learning and the opportunity to develop their core Science enquiry skills through opportunities for practical work.

A high-quality Science curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in the subject. Opportunities to complete practical activities working alongside their peers in the classroom, also helps them to build character and help to embed some of our school values such as: Friendship, Perseverance, Truthfulness, and Respect


All children receive a broad and balanced Science curriculum as part of QFWT (Quality First wave Teaching) this is about what should be on offer for all children: the effective inclusion of all pupils in high-quality everyday personalised teaching. Such teaching will, for example, be based on clear objectives that are shared with the children and returned to at the end of the lesson; carefully explained new Scientific  vocabulary; use of lively, interactive teaching styles and also make maximum use of visual and kinaesthetic as well as auditory/verbal learning. The objectives that are used are taken from the school’s skills and progression grid which is taken from the National curriculum, where possible lessons will involve a range of enquiry skills, and also practical activities.
