Science at Christ Church Pellon prepares children for a world that is ever changing. Our aim is to bridge the real divisions that exist and provide children with the skills for tomorrow’s workplace and a means to develop themselves independently to the full extent of their abilities. Through a constant focus on high quality teaching and scientific exploration we expect to see our children develop into highly skilled individuals who will be inspired to develop and learn for the rest of their lives.
Science is an exciting and relevant part of our creative curriculum which enables children to learn about, observe and explore the real world around them. Our science teaching actively encourages children to work both independently and with others in practical ways, developing secure subject knowledge, investigative skills and scientific vocabulary.
All topics allow for flexibility amongst teachers, allowing them to meet the needs of the learners and encouraging the necessary key skills in Science. These working scientifically skills are assessed by teachers each half term and show progression in learning throughout the school. All topics are sequenced so that they build upon previous learning from other topics and year groups. This is to ensure that all knowledge is retained and built upon.
