Science Curriculum

Science excites and stimulates children's curiosity about the world around them, having the ability to engage a wide range of pupils in meaningful learning. At Culmstock Primary our science teaching and learning aims to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.  It is our aim to prepare our children for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world, today and in the future.

At Culmstock Primary School our science curriculum is taught on a two year rolling programme.  All children are encouraged to develop and use a range of skills including observations, planning and investigations, as well as being encouraged to question the world around them and become independent learners in exploring possible answers for their scientific based questions. Specialist vocabulary for topics is taught and built up, and effective questioning to communicate ideas is encouraged. Concepts taught should be reinforced by focusing on the key features of scientific enquiry, so that pupils learn to use a variety of approaches to answer relevant scientific questions.
