Children are encouraged and given opportunities to develop their skills through investigative
and experimental Science. These skills include: observing, predicting, questioning, learning
how to use simple equipment and perform simple tests. The national curriculum for science
reflects the importance of spoken language in pupils’ development across the whole
curriculum- cognitively, socially and linguistically.
Science is topic themed and based on the following National Curriculum strands:-

  • Plants
  • Animals including humans
  • Everyday materials
  • Seasonal changes
  • Living things and their habitats

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the
matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.

During years 1 and 2, pupils should be taught to use the following practical scientific
methods, processes and skills through the teaching of the programme of study content: 

  • asking simple questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways 
  • observing closely, using simple equipment 
  • performing simple tests 
  • identifying and classifying 
  • using their observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions 
  • gathering and recording data to help in answering questions
