Our Curriculum

In Science we follow objectives set out in the new National Curriculum. Using key questions we cover the different areas of Science either through our topic work or standalone science lessons, whichever the topics lend their selves to. 



Working Scientifically 

 'Throughout each unit children are given the opportunity to work scientifically, posing their own questions, using scientific evidence, setting up and carrying out enquires and fair tests, using results, recording and reporting data and using scientific vocabulary throughout.


Visits and Visitors

We recently had a visit from Animal Club. 

Animal Club brought lots of animals including a snake, Beaded Dragons, PacMan frog, Guinea Pigs and a fluffy Rabbit. The children were able to have a personal experience while learning about different animal species. This was a really fun activity for the children. They learnt lots of interesting facts about the animals and were able to ask some great questions.
