Science is taught as part of the Creative Curriculum in Key Stages 1 and 2. Each year group has 5 topics per year. Some units are science-based such as:

  • Splendid Skies (Year 1)
  • The scented garden (Year 2)
  • Predator (Year 3)
  • Potions (Year 4)
  • Stargazers (Year 5)
  • Darwin’s delights (Year 6)

At Caldmore we encourage children to take part in all stages of planning and conducting experiments. Children are encouraged to ask questions for investigation and formulate predictions. This is then followed by the recording of results in age-appropriate ways such as pictograms, bar charts or tables. We develop the use of scientific vocabulary through structured talk, glossaries, games and displays.
