Above is an overview which summarises the key concepts that are taught in Science.  We have carefully sequenced the knowledge we want our pupils to gain and have organised many of the units so that pupils can make connections with other subject areas.  For example, the Rocks unit in Year 3 is taught whilst the pupils learn about Stone Age people in history.  These connections help pupils to strengthen their understanding and memory of what has been taught. Our science lessons include a lot of practical learning, with exciting experiments, and we teach our pupils to think and communicate like Scientists.
