This year we have implemented the new science curriculum. Each half term the children find out about an area of science through a topic.
We aim to developing children’s investigative skills and supporting them to work scientifically. In our classrooms, children's enthusiasm and interests are incorporated to develop their skills in thinking, talking and writing scientifically.

Children have the opportunity to raise questions, plan and carry out investigations to find answers, analyse their findings and make links with their scientific knowledge. We have a science event each term to enrich and engage our children. To further promote science, we have planned science workshop days for all children to participate in. and a Science Fair where children can present a project which they have worked on with their families at home.

Throughout the topics, teachers assess and evaluate children’s learning to inform planning and to set individual targets which are shared with the children and their parents so that they can be actively engaged and challenged in their learning.
We have had a positive year with teaching and learning in science and in celebration of our achievements we have gained the Primary Science Quality Mark.
