The principal focus of science teaching in upper Key Stage 2 is to enable pupils to develop a deeper understanding of a wide range of scientific ideas.
At upper Key Stage 2, they will encounter more abstract ideas and begin to recognise how these ideas help pupils to understand and predict how the world operates.
All living things
Properties and changes of materials
Earth and space
Evolution and inheritance
Throughout key stage 2, pupils will learn how to plan and carry out experiments, using a variety of methods, supported by the teacher.
Target Setting and assessment
In Key Stage 2 pupils are taught in classes. Pupils sit an end of topic test so that individual targets can be set.
The more able
In the classroom, work is differentiated to make sure that all students are appropriately supported and challenged. We have a wide range of resources available to enable us to do this.
Support is provided and targeted at the students in line with their ability.
