Our Aims

At Rosley CE School, we believe that all students should be provided with the necessary scientific skills and knowledge to develop their understanding of the world around them. Students should become curious and excited by a variety of opportunities to test, explore and question things encountered and often taken for granted on a daily basis. Science has the potential to help unlock a huge expanse of opportunities, vital to the world’s sustainability, and we want to provide our children with the building blocks for developing ideas and scientific working. 

We encourage our children to collaborate and build upon one another’s ideas. Through observations, research and practice of scientific skills children can begin to utilise and embed scientific vocabulary and build on this within their topics as they move through our school. We allow children to make sense of different ideas through investigations and opportunities to explore the outdoor environment. With this immersion in learning and vocabulary, we aim to draw predictions, explanations and analysis to ensure our pupils are developing a well-rounded and secure understanding of each concept before they revisit and develop these ideas across future key stages.

Please find below the Progression in Science documents, which show the key knowledge & skills covered across the school.
