Where possible, Science is planned and taught alongside a relevant Challenge Pack. In Year 2, Use of Everyday Materials is taught alongside the challenge for Up, Up and Away – How can we make something fly? We provide realistic and purposeful opportunities to see and test Science in Action.

If an area of science does not align then we teach it discretely. Either way, our Science learning ensures that all pupils develop understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. We want children to ask scientific questions, to make predictions and explain their ideas, to test them out and to observe, and to draw conclusions about their discoveries.
