At Whitings Hill the children are provided with a high quality, broad and balanced Science education which provides them with the foundations for understanding through the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
On this page you will find information on why, how, when and the intended impact of Science teaching at Whitings Hill Primary School.
This document sets out our aims for teaching Science, how we teach it across each key stage, the responsibilities of teachers, pupils and the Science co-ordinator and how Science teaching and learning is assessed.
Our Science curriculum starts in the Early Years Foundation Stage where children explore the world around them using a hands on approach to help them develop a deeper understanding of the world around them. They begin to understand how different plants and animals grow, including themselves. They begin to learn about different habitats and changes to the seasons in the UK. Following the interests of the child and continual assessment, we adjust our provision accordingly to ensure that they meet their end of year outcomes.
