At Taxal and Fernilee CE Primary School, the science curriculum has been designed to develop a lifelong curiosity and interest in the sciences in all our pupils. Our scheme of work ensures that children have a varied, progressive and well-sequenced curriculum. It provides the opportunity for progression across the full breadth of scientific study detailed in EYFS and the National Curriculum for KS1 and KS2.
We plan for children to have the opportunity to learn through varied, systematic investigations, which develop the skill to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them. As children progress through school, they develop their skill at “working scientifically” and develop greater independence in planning and conducting tests to answer a range of scientific questions.
As well as our structured curriculum, we give children the opportunity to explore their natural curiosity and develop a love of the subject with our amazing ‘Awe and Wonder’ hands on experiments and fun packed science days.
