Victoria Road Primary School

Inspiring a Love of Learning

Science

Science is taught across the school. We use Andrew’s Berry scheme of work. There are 28 units of study and each of these units has been assigned to a particular Year group in line with the guidance from the National Curriculum.

 

Throughout each and every unit of study the emphasis is on the children learning by doing. As well as the full range of practical scientific enquiries outlined, there are plenty of other strategies provided to engage the children in their science learning; drama, deep thinking time, problem-solving in various contexts, videos from web pages etc.

For each unit, there is an assessment sheet that teachers record children’s achievements during their studies.
