Science at Holy Trinity is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, as well as using and applying process skills. It prepares children for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world, whilst fostering concern about, and active care for, our environment.
We encourage positive attitudes to science through building on our children’s natural curiosity and open-mindedness, so that they will develop and sustain a lasting interest in studying science.
The children’s learning is through The National Curriculum 2013, Science Programmes of study for Key Stages 1 and 2. Assessment in science is recorded alongside the children’s work as an on-going and visible method of communication. End of Key Stage 2 science is assessed through teacher assessment. This assessment is based on observation, children’s books and formal tests.
The Year One children worked with the Year 6 children and took part in the Big Bug Hunt 2019. They had to record what they found and used drawings to support their evidence.
