Our science curriculum endeavours to inspire our children to be the scientists of the future, developing their scientific skills by posing questions and exploring the world around them in a range of ways which become increasingly detailed and independent as they progress through the school.
In science lessons throughout the school, our children will utilise the five types of scientific enquiry:
- Observation over time
- Pattern seeking
- Identifying, classifying and grouping
- Comparative and fair testing
- Research using secondary sources
We use the Knowledge Matrices document below to support the teaching and learning of science across years 1 to 6.
