At Drove, the children study a variety of different topics in science. The band progression sheets should help you identify what your child will be learning about.
Alongside studying the curriculum areas, the children also their skills in ‘working scientifically’. By completing experiments and tests the children develop their scientific observation, prediction, and evaluation skills. The working scientifically skills your child will study are formed in a jigsaw puzzle. When the children have ticked off a skill, they colour in another jigsaw puzzle piece.
In the classroom, we also have a science book of the term’s work to promote reading, science challenges and the science word of the week. Every year group will also go on a science related trip once a year to help engage the children.
