‘Science is about exploring, and the only way to uncover the secrets of the universe is to go and look.’ Brian Cox

We want all of our pupils to understand the power of thinking like a scientist: posing questions, testing their ideas and drawing conclusions. We want them to understand the important role science plays in everyday life; our local and national economy; and, how it impacts on global issues, including climate change.

Our science curriculum is based on the cutting-edge Science Mastery scheme currently being developed and published by Oxford University Press. Time spent learning and enjoying science is prioritised in our curriculum through weekly dedicated lessons as well as inter-disciplinary STEM learning. Children enjoy learning through hands-on activities such as growing plants, planning experiments in our dedicated STEM room, and using technology, such as experiencing organs using our class set of virtual reality headsets.
