Here at Acre Hall we follow the National curriculum objectives for Science. We create exciting and real life experiences to bring Science to life and aim to encourage all children to think scientifically and become Science enthusiasts.

Science is about children developing a sense of enquiry and extending their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We use a range of teaching methods in science lessons, with an emphasis on providing a curriculum which develops and extends the children’s scientific concepts and enables them to be curious about the world. This will lead to children learning to work as scientists, planning and undertaking practical investigations.

Wherever possible, links are made between science and other subjects, particularly literacy (recording and reporting), maths (accurate measuring and data recording), history (the work of influential scientists over time), geography (science of geology, habitats and other earth sciences) DT and ICT.  Activities are planned to ensure coverage of the relevant key science skills and knowledge for each year group, with particular importance placed on children working practically so that they can make discoveries for themselves.

To find out more about what each year is covering, please read through the curriculum long term plan which is posted above.

We are developing Science through the school and making links with the local community around us. This year we had an incredible Science week where we worked closely with the STEM team at Wellacre Boys Academy to give the children hands on learning experiences and explore how science is in everything around us.

Science Week

Each year we celebrate the subject of Science further by taking part in British Science Week which will involve the children learning about a specific theme. This year the children have learnt about the concept of making connections. The children in both KS1 and KS2 have enjoyed completing different investigations and experiments alongside this theme.
