Science Curriculum

Longlands Primary School uses Engaging Science which is a Primary scheme of work based on the principles that:

  • Science is best taught through practical sessions and investigation
  • Pupils should be encouraged to think both scientifically and creatively
  • Curiosity, wonder, humour and even disgust are emotions that build engagement in science
  • Science should take advantage of the many opportunities the outdoor environment offers to learn science in context
  • The teaching of science should be rigourous and ensure that pupils of all abilities make progress
  • Assessment in science should be based on what pupils demonstrate they can do in lessons rather than on tests.
