At New City Primary School we provide our pupils a science curriculum which prepares them for the 21st Century. Pupils begin their science learning journey in Nursery where guided exploratory play is key to developing enquiring minds. Working scientifically skills are embedded throughout the curriculum to enable our pupils to understand the value of science in context.
Science knowledge at New City is built on through our primary school as topics are revisited throughout a child’s primary school life. Pupils learn about natural phenomena and the world around them. Some topics covered and revisited are: Animals including Humans, Living Things and their Habitats, Plants, Materials, Forces and Electricity. We follow the National Curriculum as a basis and then provide further opportunities for our pupils through workshops, educational visits and clubs.
Every year we take part in a Science week which sparks children’s enthusiasm for the subject even further through workshops, assemblies and a range of science enquiries in lessons.
