Science is taught for 2 hours each week from Y1-Y6. We closely follow the National Curriculum and we cover all content within the year. The curriculum is organised in the most appropriate way e.g. plants in summer, seasonal changes across the whole year and light in the summer when shadows can be seen. We have developed a progressive bank of ‘working scientifically’ vocabulary that is used in every class.
As a school we are measuring progression in the ‘working scientifically’ objectives. We are also assessing the knowledge children have acquired in each unit through the use of mini-tests or through concept mapping.
