Science at High Wycombe Church of England Combined School
Science is taught throughout the school following the Key Stage 1 and 2 National curriculum. Our children are always encouraged to develop their scientific enquiry skills, taking the opportunity where ever possible to take part in, plan and set up investigations. There are many topics (e.g. animals and their habitats, electricity and forces, plants and living things) that are repeated throughout the curriculum which allow the children to build upon their prior knowledge. Science is taught practically with opportunities for the children to develop their scientific skills every lesson. The children enjoy asking questions and investigating their ideas before sharing their findings with the class. Classes continue to develop their scientific knowledge and experiences outside of the classroom in the local area and through school trips and visitors. We also have a Science day where children can get even more excited about the subject and cross curricular links e.g. a Science stimulus for their writing and topic linked texts in literacy.
