Science at Great Moor

Science is taught in blocked units of work based on the National Curriculum (modules). Children are taught how to work scientifically. They look at and explore:

  • Animal and human physiology
  • Living things and their habitats
  • Rocks and minerals
  • Light
  • Forces and magnets
  • States of matter
  • Sound
  • Electricity
  • Different materials and their properties,
  • Earth and space
  • Evolution

The children are involved in asking relevant questions, planning different types of scientific investigations, recognising and controlling variables, taking measurements using a range of scientific equipment, recording data and using their findings to make predictions.

The children are encouraged to think scientifically and to use Science in other subjects. Many cross-curricular lessons take place where the children are taught that Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. Pupils at Great Moor are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They are encouraged to understand how Science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
