How science is taught at Church Lench First School
In class 1 science is taught very closely together within the half termly topic. This is important so the children are able to make links between their overarching topic and scientific facts/skills. There are 6 topics covered within a year on a 2 yearly cycle. Each science lesson has a clear scientific objective and the skills are covered from the Year 1 science curriculum and the ‘Understanding the World’ section of the EYFS. There are occasions when scienitifc skills are taught in isolation or through other lessons as appropriate such as data logging in ICT or drawing graphs in maths lessons.
