Science

At Valley Invicta Primary School at Kings Hill Science is taught through an investigation based curriculum. Children are encouraged to explore the world around them by asking their own questions, suggesting ways to answer them and carrying out experiments and observations to make their own conclusions. 

In EYFS, children work towards the Early Learning Goal 'Understanding The World' They will know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things.  They talk about features of their own environment and how environments might vary from one another.  They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about these changes.

In KS1, children are encouraged to develop their investigation planning skills by beginning to make predictions and recording data in a simple way. Lessons are based around different types of scientific enquiries such as observing changes over a period of time, comparative tests and using secondary sources of information. Children will begin to use key scientifically vocabulary and become familiar with simple scientific equipment. 

Moving into Lower KS2, children develop their scientific skills further by beginning to suggest the most suitable line of enquiry for the questions they have posed. They will set up their own investigations and begin to recognise a fair test. Children will start to decide what data needs to be identified and collected and record this in a variety of ways including, bar charts, tables and labelled diagrams. 

In Upper KS2, children will be able to discuss in detail how scientific ideas have changed over time. They will be able to conduct their own comparative fair tests and discuss which variables need to be controlled and why. Children will identify causal relationships in the data that they collect and decide on how to display their data. They will use their results to make further predictions and suggest when further fair tests may be needed.
