We plan our science curriculum to cover the aims of the National Curriculum. Our adopted scheme of work enables pupils to meet the end of key stage attainment targets.
At Ellington Primary School, we have adopted The White Rose Science scheme of work, which uses a “small steps” approach to science teaching, and closely follows the national curriculum for science for years 1 - 6. It gives specialist and non-specialist teachers a one stop solution as they help children develop scientific understanding and grasp scientific ideas.
Careers in science and STEM sectors are also explored through visits, guest speakers and career focus days. Where possible, Science is incorporated into other areas of the curriculum.
