Bishopstone Church Of England Primary School


We believe that every one of our children is a great scientist, they are full of curiosity to observe, ask questions, test ideas, make deductions and predictions.  In turn we enable them to do this by posing questions about the world around them, teaching them how to record and analyse their findings. As well as working within the classroom, our science lessons provide a great opportunity to explore the local environment and work outdoors. The area surrounding school, such as the allotment and pond are used as an important resource.

We are following the National Curriculum for Science - click here for a link the website, alongside the built in blocks within our bespoke Dimensions Curriculum.  Due to the nature of our classes we have developed a four year rolling programme in KS2, that evolves as new, dynamic and forward thinking topics become available through Dimensions.

We aim to inspire children to utilise science within their lives today . . .and be the scientists of the future!
