Science

Following the science curriculum of 2014, each year group plans engaging, experimental work that goes beyond the statutory requirements outlined by the government. We achieved the Primary Science Quality Mark in 018 and work closely with the Howardian Alliance for training and moderation events.

Intent:

  • Continue to ensure that curriculum content is covered by each Year group and class, and aim to teach science lessons in an exciting, stimulating and practical way.
  • We constructed a Science curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
  • Ensuring all pupils have the opportunities for investigative science activities.
  • Our curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning and employment.
  • The standard of written work meets school expectations. The pupils apply their knowledge and understanding of strategies and skills taught and learnt in literacy and numeracy.

Implementation

  • Check that statutory objectives have been covered.
  • Ensure continuity and progression and enable pupils to access statutory objectives/concepts set out in the National Curriculum.
  • Science moderation (Howardian Alliance Schools).
  • Pupils are given regular opportunities in each unit of work in an investigative way by asking ‘What happens when? Or proving/disproving predictions they make.
  • They work collaboratively and independently to plan and participate in experiments. They record their work in suitable diagrams, tables and charts.
  • Use of outdoor environment to make science ‘real’.
  • Children are encouraged to use skills taught across the curriculum (ie: data handling & measuring, written and oral communication, illustration & design).
  • Health & well-being incorporated into every PE lesson.
  • Collaborative investigation.

Impact:

  • Pupils enjoy Science and see it in action in the ‘real world’
  • Many pupils are becoming more adept at explaining their scientific thinking.
