Science at Admirals

At Admirals we have a passion for teaching high quality science that sparks interest and curiosity, as well as encouraging high aspirations for our learners.
Our teaching broadly follows the national curriculum which is divided into lower key stage two (year 3 and 4) and upper key stage two (year 5 and 6) then split further into individual year groups, with some themes being covered repeatedly. E.g. Animals, including humans, appears in all year groups, progressing from a knowledge of the basic skeleton to the more complex circulatory and digestive system. Years 3 and 4 focus on gaining a greater understanding of the world around them. Years 5 and 6 focus on more abstract ideas and deeper understanding of complex scientific concepts. More information on the national curriculum can be found here: National curriculum

There is a strong focus on teaching scientific investigation skills through these themes. Targets children are expected to meet can be seen here:

We will be taking part in British Science Week 9-18th March 2018, a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths, with the theme ‘exploration and discovery’. More information to follow.
We will also be holding a science challenge day on 23rd March 2018 with parents invited into class in the afternoon. Timings to follow.
