Science is a core area of the National Curriculum. Science is studied by all pupils and takes up a significant part of each week’s learning. Where possible, knowledge and understanding are gained through first hand experience, but there are occasions when books, charts, pictures and web-based resources will supplement this.
Children are encouraged to plan, predict, hypothesise, design and carry out investigations and interpret and draw inferences from their results. They will be encouraged to communicate their results to others, through talking, drawing, diagrams, graphs, models and writing. Each Year Group studies a progression of Science topics which combine to give children a detailed knowledge, understanding and experience of science
