At Crudgington Primary School, we encourage children to be inquisitive throughout their time at the school and beyond. The Science curriculum and teaching aims to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also understanding of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future. We are committed to fostering a healthy curiosity in our pupils about our universe and promoting respect for the living and non-living.


Throughout the programme of study, the children will acquire and develop the key knowledge that has been identified within each unit, as well as the application of scientific skills which have been embedded in each topic. Topics are revisited and developed throughout their time at school; this model allows children to build upon their knowledge and increases their enthusiasm for the topics whilst embedding this procedural knowledge into long-term memory.
