At Snodland CEP School, we follow the Kent Primary Science Scheme of Work which is designed to provide excellent learning opportunities in accordance with the National Curriculum (2014).


Lessons are planned to include a range of activities that will enable the children to develop both their scientific understanding and their mastery of the nature, processes and method of Science. Each term children will work towards gaining ‘evidence’ to support the ‘Big Idea’ for each topic.

Emphasis is placed on the importance of allowing children to develop their understanding of ‘working scientifically’ through the use of a ‘skills toolkit’. Children are encouraged to develop a bank of skills from which they can then select and choose the appropriate ones to use for various tests or investigations. Scientific vocabulary is also developed and promoted through the use of ‘Science shirts’. Children love being able to write the key vocabulary for each topic on their shirts to refer to during their learning.
