Impact

For our pupils to:

  • love being inspired through exciting investigations
  • understand science in the world around them, including science capital and links to STEM careers
  • learn by questioning, testing and recording their investigations
  • achieve high quality outcomes

Scientific Enquiry

Knowledge Organisers

To support teacher subject knowledge, in science, we use knowledge organisers to make the vocabulary, subject knowledge and curriculum expectations clear. See below for an example of a Year 3 knowledge organiser.

Assessment

Alongside teacher assessment of children's scientific enquiry skills, teacher use summative pop quiz assessments at the end of each topic to assess children's knowledge. See below for example of a science pop quiz.
