The Science curriculum here at Bidborough is an important part of learning. It enables our learners to better understand the world around them, while also developing enquiry based skills.

Science is taught on a weekly basis. A spiral approach to learning, allows previous learning to be the foundation of new content. The four main disciplines of Science: Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Earth Science are taught in curriculum topics across each year group.

At the beginning of every lesson, there is a key focus on scientific vocabulary to support knowledge and understanding. It is our hope that through the development of these scientific skills our pupils will become independent learners, with a curiosity and respect for the workings of the world around them. 

Each learning point taught throughout the year will link back to one of these big ideas. Curriculum planning documents can be found below:
