Through the learning and teaching of science at Woodlea, children will increase their knowledge and understanding of the world and of themselves.
Children are taught through practical activities which makes science come alive. Their natural curiosity is stimulated with hands-on exploration increasing their ability to carry out investigative, independent tasks. Science is also used as a vehicle to promote collaborative learning and teamwork, enabling children to think critically, work with others successfully and apply their knowledge and experience to the wider world.
We use The Kent Primary scheme of work as a starting point for our Science teaching and learning. The scheme of work comprises of twenty-eight units in accordance with the guidance in the National Curriculum. The scheme has clearly indicated a progression in the key scientific knowledge and concepts from Year 1 to Year 6.
