Science at Rumboldswhyke Church of England Primary School


Our Science curriculum is designed so our learners build up a body of knowledge and an inquisitive desire to understand the world around them

It should:

  • Be embedded through a values based approach where possible.
  • Allow children to learn through exploration
  • Provide opportunities to inspire children’s curiosity about natural phenomena and the world around them
  • give opportunities for children to recognize the power of rational explanation.


Science is taught throughout our Learning Experiences with an engaging hook into learning and a purposeful authentic outcome. There is progression of scientific skills and knowledge taught across the school.


What we expect you to see:

  • Happy and engaged learners
  • Engagement and perseverance.
  • Self-motivated children.
  • Children talking about, sharing and reflecting on their learning.
  • Open and closed questioning
