It is a progressive curriculum that aims to encourage the children to ask questions of the natural world around them and to equip them with the skills to investigate some of those questions. They are encouraged to look at the uses of science in everyday life and to also think about the implications for the future.
We are fortunate to have strong links with Abbeyfield School, in Chippenham, who provide opportunities for KS2 pupils to experience science in a laboratory setting with science specialists.
In addition, the school also benefits from a continuing relationship with Dr Tom Robson, a neuroscientist and former science advisor to the Government. His input to date has involved; helping to develop our science curriculum and its assessment, leading staff training events and presenting a parents’ information evening.
The current Science topics that the children are studying in school this term can be found in the topic webs.
