Asquith Primary School recognises the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life and therefore we aim for the children to gain Science Capital on their learning journey at Asquith.  We will do this by ensuring that each Science lesson consists of knowledge, skills and working scientifically  as well as being taught through one of the enquiry types to enhance the children’s learning.  We will also enrich the curriculum with visits, visitors and experiences to develop the children’s natural curiosity.



Science is implemented through high quality lessons taught from the National Curriculum or the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. Planning is supplemented using resources from websites such as STEM Learning, TAPS, PLAN Assessment and Explorify. Children have the use of high quality resources to support their learning and opportunities are also available to enrich the science curriculum through experiences directly linked to the curriculum, such as animal visits and walks in the local area.
