We aim to develop scientific knowledge through investigation and enquiry and have planned around the improved depth as well as breadth that the IPC curriculum offers in this area. We have ensured that the areas of study suggested by the National Curriculum are covered. IPC Topics lend themselves very well to be more meaningful for pupils.Experiments and independent discovery of answers guide them to understand the processes of the world around them. We actively encourage a 'hands on' approach to Science so pupils can hypothesise and predict then set up their own experiments to test their predictions. Conclusions drawn are then their own property and represent most meaningful learning.


From September 2014 we begin teaching the new National Curriculum. The curriculum contains the programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects in KS1 and KS2. For further information please see the below link.
