We are using aspects from the learning challenge curriculum which uses Science as one of its drivers. The national curriculum expectations have been divided equally into year groups. The emphasis will be on the skills and knowledge and then how to apply these in answering scientific questions. To see the coverage of topics please see the whole school overview below. To understand more about how our scientific skills progress please see our skills progression.
