During science lessons, the children develop practical and investigative skills. We make full use of the National Curriculum to teach science. Teaching is based around the Rising Stars ‘Switched on Science’ teaching materials. These are adapted as necessary to meet the needs of the children.
We teach children about living things and how the world works through enquiry and experimenting at every age. We encourage children to question and discuss science-based issues that may affect their own lives, the direction of society and the future of the world. Above all we aim to make Science fun!
The teaching of Science at Key Stage 1 has four main areas.
- Working Scientifically
- Animals including humans
-Everyday Materials and
- Seasonal changes
We teach scientific enquiry through the contexts of the main content areas and wherever possible to make connections and cross curricular links with other subjects.
Children in EYFS are taught the science elements of the foundation stage document through the Early Years Learning Curriculum: Understanding the World.
