At St. Peter’s school, we encourage inquisitiveness and curiosity through delivering exciting and stimulating science topics. The science curriculum is embedded in a creative way into topics for each year group. Pupils complete one larger science unit and one smaller unit each year. Alongside the national curriculum, pupils are also provided with the opportunity to develop working scientifically skills in a progressive way, building upon prior learning, which enables them to become more independent inquirers.
Knowledge in science progresses throughout each year group, and unit topics are repeated in more depth as pupils move up through the school. We make sure that topics in KS2 build on prior learning in KS1.
