At Earl Soham Community Primary School, we recognise the importance and value of science in creating curiosity and inquisitiveness about the world we live in. Our aim is to deliver science lessons which join up scientific thinking and explore and develop links between themes and ideas, teaching children to question, hypothesise and draw conclusions. We want our children to develop a life-long love of learning though the excitement of experimenting, exploring and understanding.
We follow the Curriculum Maestro Scheme for science which reflects our wish to teach science discretely whilst making strong links across the curriculum through topic work and skills taught and revisited.
Want to help at home?
Every term we send home knowledge organisers which set out what we hope your child will learn over the course of the term. You could discuss the facts on the sheet, play guessing games by covering up key information and encourage your child to read and research around the subject. In case the sheets are mislaid, you will also find them here.
