Science at James Brindley

At James Brindley, we use practical science to make learning truly fun and engaging. We also plan each topic around an overarching question to 'hook' the children's interest.

 

An overview of the topics covered by all year groups can be seen below in the Whole School Topic Map. All topics are divided into the three key strands of Biology, Chemistry and Biology. When planning fun and engaging lessons, teachers refer to the Progression in Knowledge documents (see below) to ensure that there is adequate curriculum coverage and also that there is a clear progression in scientific knowledge from year group to year group. Alongside these documents,  teachers also use the Progression in Scientific Skills documents to ensure that each topic plan is sharply focused upon improving scientific skills as well as knowledge. 

 

We also invite families in to watch Eureka sessions where children work to design and carry out investigations. We also work closely with local High Schools to offer exciting opportunities for children to begin to experiment in science laboratories. Take a look at out videos below to see these projects in action.
