Science - Scientific Enquiry

thumbnail_PSQM 2023

To ensure that there is a depth to our wider curriculum, we have an ongoing  focus for Science. 

As part of this focus, each class from Pre-School to Year 6 focus on Scientific concepts, content, vocabulary, knowledge and practical skill acquisition. We arrange a number of activities each term where children can apply Scientific Enquiry.

At the end of the topic, depth (Kapow Learning Statements) and breadth (National Curriculum End Points) are assessed using analyse tasks and pupil conferencing. 

Other areas of the National Curriculum will also be taught in conjunction with Science.

The School has been awarded with the Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) for its committment to Science. 

Characteristics of a Scientist

  • Scientific knowledge and understanding: observing, studying and explaining the physical world.
  • Working scientifically: using different methods of scientific enquiry to understand the world around us.
  • Science in action: how science can be used and its impact on our day-to-day lives.

Curriculum Documents

We aim to provide through high quality teaching and learning experiences every child with the key knowledge and transferrable skills they require to achieve in all subjects and develop a love of learning which will be with them for their whole life.

The documents below outline how we do this:

Please note that we have mixed the order of units from Kapow Primary. This is due to the mixed ages of our classes and to ensure that are best linked to other units / topics from across the National Curriculum.
