The Science curriculum is planned around the 2014 National Curriculum. In KS1 Science is taught for a minimum of one hour per week and in KS2 a minimum of two hours. Science knowledge and skills are a focus for each half term as well as developing children’s scientific enquiry. Teachers encourage pupils' curiosity through first-hand practical experiences: planning & carrying out investigations and developing their questioning.
