At St. Teresa’s Primary School we recognise Science as a core subject of the National Curriculum. We follow the National Curriculum Programme of Study for key stages 1 and 2. Science in the Foundation stage is based on the ‘EYFS Statutory Framework for the Foundation stage.’
Our curriculum enables children to develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding. They develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries. Teachers use different contexts to maximise their pupils’ engagement with and motivation to study science. They make excellent use of the local resources such as the coast, the power station and the reclaimed wetlands from our industrial heritage. We want to ensure that they are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
