Science at Copeland Road
Our Science leader is Mrs. Musgrave
Our Science governor is George Smith
Children at Copeland Road are taught Science in blocks throughout the year. This allows children to gain a deeper understanding of the topics covered. In Science lessons, children are learning through enquiry-based learning by questioning and exploring and experimenting to find out the answers to questions asked. Children will reflect on previous learning and cross-curricular links are made wherever possible. Children will build on prior knowledge and link ideas together, enabling them to question and become enquiry-based learners. Children will use a range of resources to develop their knowledge and understanding that is integral to their learning and develop their understanding of working scientifically.
When children leave Copeland Road to attend secondary school, we would like them to be able to:
- Have developed an enthusiasm and enjoyment of scientific learning and discovery.
- We want our children to have developed their thinking and questioning skills,
- We would like our children to becoming increasingly independent thinkers and questioners, and not be afraid to ask ‘why?’
- We want our children to have scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
- We would like our children to leave with a developed an 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.
- We want children to leave fully equipped with the scientific skills required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
The long-term plan for Science is below as well as the National Curriculum. There may be changes to the long-term plan as we continue to recover our curriculum after National lockdowns.
