At Langdale Primary School, Mrs Underwood is our science subject leader.
Our science curriculum is carefully designed to ensure that children cover the required programme of study by the end of each key stage.
Within each key stage, staff have the flexibility to introduce content earlier or later than set out in the single year group programme of study to match our mixed class groupings. Our approach is to ensure that the science curriculum taught ensures that the scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding is progressive and appropriate to the cohort group being taught.
Our science curriculum is taught in discrete subject specialist sessions which are then carefully interwoven to our key theme topic questions. We believe, this approach allows the children to develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. This in turn equips the children with an understanding of the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
