"I have no special talent.  I am only passionately curious"

Albert Einstein


Why do we teach Science? 
  • To spark the children's curiosity and encourage them to ask questions about the world around them
  • To equip the children with scientific knowledge and understanding of our world 
  • To develop critical thinking, with the ability to ask perceptive questions and explain and analyse evidence
  • To promote a respect for the natural world
  • To empower children to become active and responsible global citizens and make positive choices and contributions to move towards a greener future
What do we teach?

We teach the National Curriculum and we use the Kapow scheme of work as a resource.  

In order to meet the aims of the National curriculum for Science and in response to the Ofsted Research review into Science, the Kapow scheme has identified the following key strands:

1. Scientific knowledge and understanding of:

  • Biology - living organisms and vital processes.
  • Chemistry - matter and its properties.
  • Physics - how the world we live in ‘works’.

2. Working scientifically - processes and methods of science to answer questions about the world around us.

3. Science in action - uses and implications of science in the past, present and for the future.

Kapow Primary’s Science scheme is a spiral curriculum, with essential knowledge and skills revisited with increasing complexity, allowing pupils to revise and build on their previous learning. A range of engaging recall activities promote frequent pupil reflection on prior learning, ensuring new learning is approached with confidence.
