Science Overview


At Newburgh Church of England Primary School, we aim to provide a rich and engaging science curriculum that meets the needs of the children in our community. Our Science curriculum is designed to deepen knowledge and develop skills, ensuring effective progression within the subject and across all year groups. The science curriculum is delivered through highly effective 'quality first teaching' which aims to stimulate pupils' interest in scientific phenomena and to foster a sense of awe and wonder. Through this delivery we provide children with the foundations for understanding the world.

In science we follow the national curriculum, in which meaningful investigations and enquiry are the core of every child's learning. Our science curriculum is based on a two yearly cycle which has been shaped and developed to meet children's interest and needs in our mixed age classes.
