Curriculum Overview

In Science the children’s work encompasses the following areas: scientific
enquiry, life processes and living things, materials and their properties and
physical processes.
Scientific investigation and enquiry occur every half term. Discussion,
questioning, planning, observation, measurement and evaluation are seen as
essential to the development of a sound scientific knowledge base. This may
be enhanced by class visits, in-school presentations or support from outside
Children are made aware of safety in all aspects of scientific investigation, at a
level appropriate to the age and understanding of the individual.
The children are provided with a wide range of situations, materials and
activities designed to enable them to develop their skills of scientific enquiry
and learn about a wide range of living things, materials and phenomena.
