Science

At Huntington Community Primary School, we aim to provide children with a rich and engaging curriculum which provides chidlren with the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.   

Our hands-on approach to the teaching and learning of science encourages our children to have a strong understanding of the worldaround them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also have an understanding of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.

Our curricilum ensures that scientific enquiry skills are embedded within each topic that the children study, these topics are revisited and developed throughout their time at our school. This approach allows children to build upon their prior knowledge and increases their enthusiasm for topics whilst embedding knowledge. All children are encouraged to develop and use a range of skills including observations, planning and investigations, as well as being encouraged to question the world around them and become independent learners in exploring possible answers for their scientific based questions.

 

Our long-term plan shows which topics are taught in which year group, and our progression document demonstrates the skills covered during each year group which are divided into the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
