Planning for Science is a process in which all teachers are involved to ensure that the school gives full coverage of the National Curriculum. We have carefully adapted and extended our curriculum to match the unique circumstances of Rook’s Nest Academy. The school teaches Science weekly throughout the year often through the Learning Challenge Curriculum (such as forces and electricity linked with The Industrial Revolution). The academy has worked to ensure that, alongside full coverage, core scientific skills are built on through the Key Stages. Children move through the year groups, acquiring a bank of scientific vocabulary and understanding. This will complement the whole school focus on practical investigations. Children developing their own hypotheses and investigating their own experiments is a priority as we work towards our children becoming resilient learners Content is taught carefully and thoroughly and is introduced in the phase areas set out in the National Curriculum: Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2. Scientific enquiry, known as ‘Working Scientifically’ in the 2014 curriculum, is taught through and embedded within the content of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.  Reception children are taught Science as set out in the renewed EYFS framewor
