Curriculum

Science at Northfield Manor Primary Academy
Science is taught with the aim to offer children a range of opportunities which help develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of important scientific ideas and processes and relate them to everyday life. In every year group, children have the opportunity to plan, prepare, record and report on scientific investigations, focusing on using a variety of vocabulary, skills and resources.

Science learning ensures that all pupils develop understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. We want children to ask scientific questions, to make predictions and explain their ideas, to test them out and to observe, and to draw conclusions about their discoveries.

Pupils are taught a broad range of topics such as The Human Body, Keeping Healthy, Plants, The Earth, Moon and Sun and Electricity, Magnets and Forces, and many others. They use a wide range of equipment and multimedia resources.
