Science at Church Eaton ensures that all pupils develop scientific knowledge and understanding in the key disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Through scientific enquiries, children will develop an understanding of the nature, process and methods of science to help answer scientific questions about the world around them. All pupils will be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. Throughout our science lessons, children will be exposed to technical terminology and will build up an extended specialist vocabulary. Mathematical knowledge will be applied to further their science knowledge by collecting, presenting and analysing data.


Science at Church Eaton is taught discretely in each class. Where possible, the science topic will link to the wider foundation topic (e.g. Class 3 will learn about the water cycle at the same time as Misty Mountain, Winding River). All of our science topics use the Cornerstones curriculum as a basis for lessons to ensure there is appropriate coverage of the national curriculum. A large amount of our science lessons will be investigation or experiment based, allowing children to develop their scientific enquiry skills at the same time as acquiring the knowledge needed to become scientists.
