Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity and survival. All pupils at Croft are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. They are taught to understand our world by carefully thinking about it and testing their predictions with observations and experiments. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
Our Science topics are informed by the National Curriculum. We use the progression of skills table to ensure that children are taught scientific knowledge (substantive knowledge) and scientific skills (disciplinary knowledge) and that those skills progress as they move up through school.
High quality lessons help children to aspire to be the best they can be. Following on from EYFS and Key Stage 1, teachers instill, extend and enhance a love of learning in children where they can explore science with a continued confidence.
Our learning in Science continues beyond the classroom and Cornerstones curriculum with additional events, such as Science Week.
