The National Curriculum for Science states:

During years 1 and 2, pupils should be taught to use the following practical scientific methods, processes and skills through the teaching of the programme of study content:

  • asking simple questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways
  • observing closely, using simple equipment
  • performing simple tests
  • identifying and classifying
  • using their observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions
  • gathering and recording data to help in answering questions.

We currently focus our teaching of KS1 Science through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) as well as the Kent Primary Scheme. 

In the Early Years, children learn to  recognise similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes. Many of the activities planned  for  'The World' take place in our outside areas, for example planting, observing seasonal changes, mini beast hunts, plying in the mud kitchen and harvesting herbs and vegetables.
