The science curriculum in Key Stage One builds on the learning that has already taken place in the EYFS and moves forward the children's scientific thinking and investigative skills.

Where possible, acquisition of scientific knowledge is taught through scientific enquiry.  During weekly lessons, children are given opportunities to:

  • ask questions
  • make close observations and use equipment
  • identify and classify
  • using evidence to support their thinking and draw simple conclusions
  • gather and record data
  • understand the importance of rigour and accuracy when gathering results

Scientific themes include:

  • plants
  • animals
  • materials and their properties
  • earth and beyond
  • living and non-living things
  • habitats
  • movement
