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.
KS1 have conducted lots of investigations this year. They have been sorting and classifying materials, investigating which materials would be the best to keep us dry. They also investigated how germs spread and the best way to wash their hands.
