At Huntington Community Primary School, we aim to deliver a rich and engaging curriculum which provides children with the foundations for understanding the world through the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
Our hands-on approach to teaching and learning encourages children to have a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring the specific skills and knowledge to support their scientific thinking. As a result, children will gain an understanding of scientific processes and of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.
Our curriculum ensures that scientific enquiry skills are embedded within each topic. Topics and disciplines are revisited and developed from EYFS through to Year 6 allowing children to build upon their prior knowledge. All pupils are encouraged to develop and use a range of skills including observations, planning and investigating. Children are also encouraged to question the world around them and become independent learners.

In the Early Years, the 7 areas of learning and development shape the science educational programme in our setting, offering foundational knowledge and skills for the KS1 Science Curriculum.

In KS1 and KS2, children study the National Curriculum statements relevant to each year group. Click here for details on how our curriculum supports progression in learning through adaptation of the Plymouth Science scheme of learning.
