Intent, Implementation and Impact
National Curriculum aim:
Science at Springfield
The National Curriculum Programme of Study for Science describes a sequence of knowledge and concepts, processes and methods. This sequence of knowledge and concepts is arranged as progressive blocks of key ideas in biology, chemistry and physics, alongside a progression in the skills of working scientifically. The Programme of Study is set out year by year for Key stages 1 and 2 but each science topic is not covered in every year. Working Scientifically is taught throughout KS1 and 2, embedded within the content of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
What will my child learn in Science?
Key Stage 1
|Key Stage 2|
|Pupils begin to work together to collect evidence to help them answer questions and to link this to simple scientific ideas. They conduct simple experiments to test these ideas and evaluate their findings. The communicate their ideas using scientific language, drawings, charts and tables. Children are encouraged to ask questions and comment on how science relates to their own lives.||Pupils build on their previous learning, begin to make links between ideas and explain things using simple models and theories. They apply their knowledge to familiar concepts, everyday things and their personal health. Working on their own or with others, they carry out more systematic investigations, and communicate ideas using a wide range of scientific language, diagrams, charts and graphs.|
