At Cullingworth Village Primary we follow the National Curriculum for science. (Click on the links below to see the Science Curriculum for each Key Stage).
The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
- develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
- are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
Science at Cullingworth primary is taught through the creative curriculum. Teachers are encouraged to be creative in their science teaching to make science fun and engaging to all pupils. Through teaching science creatively pupils are encouraged to think and behave creatively.
Pupils who think and behave creatively, are likely to;
- Question and challenge;
