How we teach

The programmes of study describe a sequence of knowledge and concepts. While it is important that pupils make progress, it is also vitally important that they develop secure understanding of each key block of knowledge and concepts in order to progress to the next stage. Each unit is carefully planned with consideration of parallel year groups to personalise learning. 


Each classroom develops a working wall, displaying key vocabulary, learning focus, resources, worked examples or models throughout the unit to support the children’s learning. The children work through different experiments in order to answer an investigative question or to expand their knowledge of a topic.


Parental partnership is key, especially as we continue to give the children an environment where they are learning about the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science within our delivery. Teachers use their Facebook closed class groups to post pictures so parents have an understanding of what we are teaching and what the children are learning about.
