Key Stage 1 and 2 Curriculum Implementation
Our science programme follows the DfE scheme of work and we use a scheme of work called Developing Experts to help guide our teaching in this subject. The topics are carefully planned so that the science is based on sound principles and processes. The emphasis throughout the programme is on first hand experience wherever possible and the value of questioning and drawing valid conclusions.
There is a strong focus on scientific knowledge and language, rather than understanding the nature and methods of science in abstract terms. Evolution is taught in Primary Schools for the first time.
Non-core subjects like caring for animals, has been replaced by topics like the human circulatory system. We like to use our links with Bishop Ramsey to support our learning in Science. The Head of Science takes our assembly in our annual Science week and supports the development of Science planning across the school.
