Science at Newburn Manor
At Newburn Manor, we want our science curriculum to highlight and explore children’s curiosity in the world around them and how it works. We want our pupils to recognise the importance of scientific discoveries to their lives and how scientists, past, present and future, will shape their lives for the better. Science is a prominent industry in the modern world and the scientific literacy and critical thinking skills they develop will undoubtedly continue to help them make sense of the world around them as they grow.
In weekly Science lessons, Y1-6 will cover all topics listed under the National Curriculum Guidance. They have been purposefully placed to make the most of fieldwork opportunities, seasonal change and to allow pupils the optimum opportunity to make links with other areas.
At the heart of our science curriculum is enjoyment. We want our pupils to be enthusiastic about science, first and foremost. By the end of their time at Newburn, our pupils will have covered a range of topics and scientific enquiry types, helping to prepare them for the next stage of their Science education. They will have developed their scientific literacy and understanding, enabling them to continue to make sense of the world as they grow. Our engagement with the local environment ensures that children learn through varied and first-hand experiences of the world around them and understand the value of maintaining it.
