High quality science lessons enthuse and motivate children to ask questions and solve problems about the world in which they live. Science has changed the way we live our lives and will continue to do so; therefore children need to experience scientific skills and use them across all scientific areas: biology, physics and chemistry.

At Thythorn Field Primary School we follow the Science Programme of Study, which can be found in the National Curriculum.

The National Curriculum for Science aims to ensure that all pupils

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future


Children in the Foundation Stage learn about science through the area of 'Understanding the world' They learn about 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.
