John E Batty Primary School

Science

Children are naturally fascinated by everything in the world around them, and a major aim of Science in the Primary school is to help children understand the world in which they live. We build on this natural curiosity by extending and developing their scientific knowledge and skills.

We plan our Science coverage as a whole school. Each year group have specific objectives linked directly to the National Curriculum. Science mini-topics will also often be covered as separate lessons.

Science has strong links with Numeracy, Technology and Geography and provides many opportunities for Language development.
