Science will be taught as a separate lesson or block and will be linked to our Topic work where and if appropriate. We will encourage our pupils to be curious about natural phenomena and to be excited by the process of understanding the world around them. Key scientific terminology will be introduced each lesson and knowledge will be built upon throughout the school. Pupils will be encouraged to work scientifically and will able to carry out simple tests and experiments using equipment and to gather and record data. Whilst at Breadsall Hilltop, children will learn about plants, animals including humans, materials, seasonal change, habitats, rocks, light, forces, states of matter, sound, electricity, earth and space and evolution and inheritance. There will be opportunities to enhance the delivery of our science curriculum. We will also have dedicated science days throughout the year.
