Curriculum Intent for Science:
Through the teaching of Science, we aim to stimulate and excite children's curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them, helping them to make sense of these.
Through direct teaching and exploration, we aim to enable the children to learn to question and discuss science- based issues that may affect their own lives, the direction of society and the future of the world in which they live.
Progression of Science in our school:
Miss Connell runs a Science Club after school on Tuesdays (3:15 - 4:15pm). This club was open to KS2 for Autumn Term and is now open to KS1 in Spring Term.
Some of the scientific concepts that KS2 children have explored include; density, states of matter and chemical reactions and their byproducts. We continue to learn more each week and are becoming excellent scientists, learning how to predict, observe closely and draw conclusions about our investigations.
KS1 children have practised their prediction skills and have been making scientific observations, asking ourselves "what do you notice?" when exploring floating and sinking and making lemon volcanoes.
