At Beecholme, our developmental Science curriculum provides children with the opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge through investigation.

Scientific knowledge

From growing beans to designing animal habitats; testing conductive materials to investigating their own genetics. Our Science curriculum provides opportunities to for children to learn and build up their understanding of scientific processes through practical activities.

Scientific skills
All year groups confidently explore, predict and analyse data through scientific enquiry. This includes:

  • Comparative and fair testing
  • Observing over time
  • Seeking patterns
  • Identifying, classifying and grouping
  • Researching with the use of secondary sources

We aim to further develop each child’s Science Capital and foster a love of learning through whole-school Science days, excursions and visits and workshops delivered by experts.
