We teach Science on the basis of two-year cycles.

In KS1, aspects of the curriculum covered include: animals including humans, living things and their habitats, everyday materials and their uses, seasonal changes and plants. These are delivered through a cross-curricular theme.

In KS2, the areas covered include: plants, animals including humans, living things and their habitats, electricity, sound and light, rocks, forces and magnets and states of matter.

Year 6 pupils have additional areas of learning, including: evolution and inheritance, earth and space.

We use a range of resources, productions and hands-on experience, as well as a variety of approaches to develop experimental and investigative skills, and the use of the correct language.

In years 5 and 6, we introduce the children to aspects of sex education.
