Children are encouraged to observe, ask questions, test ideas, make deductions and predictions.

The children spend time completing investigative and experimental work. As well as working within the classroom, 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.

Foundation Stage (Reception) Science is taught across the curriculum. Children are encouraged to explore the world around them and talk about what they notice.  Homelink communication books encourage parents to note comments children make about this outside of school, which they then share in school.

Bishopstone School follows the National Curriculum skills and knowledge for Science. We are following the National Curriculum for Science - click here for a link the website


Due to the nature of our classes we have developed a four year rolling programme that is evolving as we work through the first complete cycle of this.
