At Banks Road Primary School, we believe that a high quality Science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Our Science curriculum outlines carefully chosen, cumulative knowledge, vocabulary and skills so that children can build upon what they’ve learnt with confidence and success. We prioritise the explicit teaching of age and topic appropriate vocabulary to give children the best opportunity to engage with science learning. We recognise the abstract nature of many scientific concepts, so adopt a very practical approach to teaching and learning in this subject. The children at Banks Road regularly answer scientific questions and work like scientists through 5 different enquiry types across each year, making use of the appropriate Maths skills.
