Investigation and enquiry are at the heart of science and our curriculum. Our units give children the opportunity to be practical and discover for themselves the wonders of the world of science.
We use the ARK Curriculum+ Scheme of work, which is based on the National Curriculum, to guide progression in knowledge and skills over time so that when our children leave us in Year 6, they are ready for the next step in their education at secondary school.
