How do we teach Science at Fleckney School?
Our aims in Science for our children are:
• To develop enquiring minds and a curiosity for scientific knowledge and the natural world.
• To acquire and develop the necessary knowledge, understanding and investigative skills in order to take part in scientific enquiry and arrive at a solution or conclusion.
• To forge meaningful connections between STEM in the classroom.
Planning and Delivery
Science is taught through the Knowledge and Understanding of the World aspect of the framework. Science skills are taught through the study of Harvest, light and dark, hot and cold places, new life, growing and planting, and mini beasts.
KS1 and KS2
Science is taught by following the National Curriculum programmes of study: plants; animals including humans; living things and their habitats; seasonal changes; evolution and inheritance;materials; rocks; states of matter; sound; electricity; Earth and space; light; forces; electricity;and working scientifically (which is taught through the other areas).
We have a large bank of both online and physical resources to ensure the children have access to high-quality, practical learning.
