Science

Science Long Term Plan

Science contributes significantly to pupils’ enjoyment and understanding of the world and their place within it. It is made accessible to all pupils through a focus on practical work, first-hand experience and special events designed to inspire and engage learners. Teaching key skills such as making observations, predictions and evaluation of first hand observations are of equal importance to knowledge and understanding.

Our Science curriculum follows a 2 year rolling program which allows pupils sufficient time to explore, learn and embed knowledge and understanding.  Each department will follow a different theme each half term. This ensures that pupils have access to a wide range of equipment and resources to support their learning.
