Subject Intent

Science is an essential part of the curriculum as it enables young people to develop their understanding of scientific concepts and make sense of the world around them. It develops transferable skills including problem-solving, reasoning and enquiry.

The intent of our science curriculum is to create opportunities to ensure that every child has a positive experience of science throughout their primary school education. We must do this by inspiring children, encouraging them to be inquisitive about the world, nurturing their innate curiosity and enabling them to develop a range of skills that are useful across their learning. Children are naturally inquisitive and science should nurture this and allow them to ask questions independently and develop the skills they need to answer those questions. 

Our science curriculum is also designed to motivate, inspire and engage all children in science lessons but to be aware of, and take responsibility for, addressing gender stereotyping in science lessons; encouraging girls to want to explore careers in science and STEM subjects.

Pick a plant that you can see out of your window and draw a picture of it, showing all of the details. 




Year 1 





What are the main parts of a flowering plant? Can you draw and label a picture of a flowering plant?  


Once you have had a go, use this link to check if you remembered all of the parts!  


Challenge yourself to draw and label the parts of a tree too!  




Year 2 





Can you draw the cycle to show plant growth?  


Use this link to find out some more information about the lifecycle of plant. Was there any information you missed? 


It is important to know how to take care of a plant by knowing what plants need to grow. Use this link to find out more information and then see if you can create a poster with all of the information you have learnt.
