At Cubitt Town we aim to teach an average of 2 hours of science every week, with some topics naturally lending themselves to scientific enquiry we expect the amount of science taught to be greater during those periods of learning.

We want to teach the children to not just know scientific facts but to think scientifically in a range of ways. Children should have purposeful, topic linked investigations which enables them to question the processes and enquiry that best fits the purpose with a distinct focus on hands on practical work.

To encourage and promote stimulating learning the wonders and phenomena of science should be captured and demonstrated through ambitious and confident learning.

The children will be assessed through formative and summative means every half term using the online Rising Star tracking system to record progress.
