Science update 2016
We are now using the 2014 National Curriculum across the whole school when planning for Science. Objectives within this curriculum are followed by each year group to ensure progression and coverage is consistent. The cross-curricular, thematic approach to the curriculum at Millfields, enables Science to be taught through real-life and relevant scenarios, encouraging the children to explore and interact with the world around them.
Most of the units covered lend themselves to hands-on and practical activities and the staff at the school help the children to design, carry out and reflect on their experiments and investigations as part of ‘working scientifically’ when recording their results. Millfields is a well-resourced school and the up-to-date and dynamic resources ensure lessons are hands-on, practical and engaging.
