Our Curriculum Vision for Science

Our aim, at Woodstone Community Primary School, is for all children to enjoy science and to develop a secure and deep understanding of scientific concepts, knowledge and investigative procedures.

It is our intent that all children are taught key skills through high quality teaching with regular opportunities to investigate and explore scientific concepts.

We want children to think of themselves as scientists and experience the fascination and excitement of discovery as they explore new concepts, and develop scientific skills in this subject.


Science at Woodstone

At Woodstone we recognise the importance of science in every aspect of daily life. As one of the core subjects taught in Primary Schools, we want our children to be naturally curious about the world around them. We ensure that science is taught every week and we take a practical approach whenever possible. We make cross-curricular links wherever possible, especially in English. Science also provides opportunities to apply maths skills in a practical context. We value enrichment opportunities and our pupils enjoy a variety of trips, visitors and special science activities.






What's new in Science?
This year we have finalised our long term plan and worked on detailed medium term plans in order to ensure progression. We encourage a love of science through celebrating Science Week where we learn about a range of scientists and undertake a fun task related to the British Science Week theme. We enjoy a variety of school trips such as The National Space Centre, Twycross Zoo and Rosliston Forestry Centre. We also have  visitors to enrich our learning , including animal visitors and engaging sessions from CLS.
