Science at Kirkdale St. Lawrence
In our school, our vision is to give children a Science curriculum which enables them to explore and discover the world around them, confidently, making new discoveries independently by asking scientific questions and planning their own investigations to find out the answers.
We use the our own bespoke science scheme to ensure that children in our school are taught in a way that suits their learning and so that we are meeting all the required national curriculum objectives. The topics covered in each year group are listed below.
EYFS - In the Early Years, Science is covered under the understanding the world development strand. Through play based activities children explore many areas of science including living things, materials and forces.
