Science

At Bordesley Village Primary School we have strived to maintain excellent standards in the teaching and learning of science. In order to meet national expectations for our children we have invested in the Collin’s Snap Science scheme. This scheme is one which evolves to ensure teachers are always up-to-date with any changes to the new curriculum.

As part of our assessment routine we have recently introduced the Rising Stars material which helps teachers to track pupil progress throughout each topic.

In addition to meeting the statutory requirements we aim to reinforce our children’s learning through the use of Enrichment Lessons. These lessons aim to give the children the investigative opportunities to plug any gaps in learning, too.

Our long term overview for Science across the school is as follows:
  Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Year 6
Autumn 1 Humans Humans All About the body Humans Humans and Animals Humans and Animals
Autumn 2 Seasonal changes Everyday materials Forces and Magnets Electricity Forces Electricity

Spring 2 Plants Plants Plants Sound Properties and changes of materials Evolution and Inheritance
Summer 1 Animals Living Things and Habitats Animals Animals Earth and Space Living Things and Habitats
Summer 2 Seasonal Changes Living Things and Habitats Light and Shadow Living Things and Habitats Living Things and Habitats Living Things and Habitats
To foster collaborative thinking and higher order skills, we have put a significant focus on language development in science. To support children with this and towards the improvement of conceptual understanding, we encourage children to complete the science holiday homework tasks before a new unit of study has begun. Your support in enabling the children to achieve this is greatly appreciated.
