Shaping Bright Futures Together




  • Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding across different programmes of study
  • Engage in practical investigation and exploration, both teacher and child-led
  • Develop and apply key scientific skills from year to year



In our Science lessons we use a range of resources and equipment to develop of Scientific skills.  

A long term plan has been developed over a 2 year period to ensure that each topic is fully covered at the appropriate level within a mixed age class.

We work closely with Bredon Hill Academy and our cluster first schools to ensure we are up to date and are sharing and adopting new and exciting developments in STEM learning.
