Science Curriculum

Science is one of the four 'Core' Subjects of the National Curriculum.

Through Science, children can learn how to think, make appropriate decisions and solve problems more effectively, whilst gaining reinforcement in number work, language skills, ICT and a reinforcement of Foundation subjects through cross curricular links.

Our Science Curriculum has been reviewed to ensure that it meets the needs of the children and the criteria laid down in the 2015 National Curriculum.

Our approach to Science is based on exploration and is designed to ensure the children undertake as much practical work as possible and can relate their experience to everyday life.

We have a newly renovated science room all ready for inquisitive minds and scientific exploration!

National Curriculum Links: 

  • Compare and group together everyday materials based on their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets 

  • Know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution 


Space and Earth – Year 5 

National Curriculum Links:
