In our school, Science is taught via a theme-based approach, with links being made to other subjects such as spoken language and Maths where possible. Facts and vocabulary from the National Curriculum are taught systematically.
However, in line with our core value of ‘Reason’, we believe that children need the broadest experience of 'Working Scientifically' in order to become confident individuals who look for and test empirical evidence in all areas of their lives. This will enable them to develop the critical and analytical skills required to achieve well in their future education and lives. Therefore, we are improving our teaching of Science in this direction, and ensuring that the right resources are in place in order to do so, using the themes of the National Curriculum and ensuring that 'Working Scientifically' is fully embedded in these.
