We follow the National Curriculum guidance for Science. We use the Science Bug scheme. (See link below.) All children have weekly lessons.
In the EYFS and Key Stage 1, our curriculum encourages children to experience and observe the world around them. We use practical experiences, explorations and observations to encourage the children to be curious and ask questions about what they notice. Through our curriculum we want to help them develop scientific ideas and enquiry and to develop subject specific vocabulary. We do this through hands-on practical experiences as much as we can or by using secondary sources such as books, photographs and videos.
At Key Stage 2 we want to children to broaden their scientific view of the world around them. They do this through exploring, talking about, testing and developing ideas about the world around them. They are beginning to draw conclusions and use specific scientific vocabulary and to be able to record what they have found out.
