Some of our science curriculum is taught through a topic approach and some is taught as individual lessons. Topics are based around questions such as 'Why would a dinosaur not make a good pet?' and 'What would a journey through your body look like?'.  Through these questions, pupils cover a science based topic. 

We ensure that links to science are also made when appropriate in topics that are driven by history or geography.  For example, we might design and test bridges in a topic on 'Where would you choose to build a city?' or we might investigate rocks and soils in a topic called 'What makes the Earth angry?'. 

Throughout our science work, we ensure that children develop their skills and understanding to be able to work scientifically.  Thus, through science teaching we will help children develop their skills in observation, classification, measurement and fair testing.
