Science is a systematic investigation of the physical, chemical and biological aspects of the world which relies on first-hand experiences and on other sources of information. The scientific process and problem-solving activities will be used to deepen pupils’ understanding of the concepts involved. The main aspects of Science to be studied will be determined by the programmes of study of the National Curriculum 2014.
Through Science, pupils at Brookhouse Primary School will continue to deepen their respect, care and appreciation for the natural world and all its phenomena.
Teaching key subject specific vocabulary is also a key part of our Science curriculum. The vocabulary children will need for that unit are identified on the Science scheme of work for each cohort, and this builds upon the vocabulary they have learnt in earlier years. The key vocabulary will be identified in the Key Vocabulary section on the children’s knowledge organisers.
