In Science we use the programmes of study for key stages 1 and 2 for the National Curriculum in England. For a complete overview please click HERE to open a new window with the whole document from the Department for Education.

Much of our science is taught through the IPC units. Where any science is not covered in this way we teach it as a separate science unit.

Over the course of key stages 1 and 2 children will be given the opportunity to develop to the full, their abilities in:

  • Working scientifically
  • Plants
  • Animals including humans
  • Materials
  • Seasonal changes
  • Living things and their habitats
  • Rocks
  • Light
  • Forces and magnets
  • States of matter
  • Sound
  • Electricity
  • Earth and space
  • Evolution and inheritance

The lead staff member for Science is Mr Cuff who is supported by Mrs Broad.
