Science Statement of Intent

Cedars Curriculum Statement


At Cedars Primary School, teaching and learning is based upon a language rich themed curriculum where pupils are exposed to a range of experiences to enhance their knowledge, understanding and long term memory. As a result, pupils at Cedars are confident, aspirational, articulate learners who are ready for the next stage of education.


How Science is taught

Science at Cedars is planned using the National Curriculum Statutory Guidelines document. Teachers use the Lancashire Curriculum  to plan and supplement a series of lessons, connected to the main topic for each half term. The Science Progression of Skills document enables each year group to tackle an area such as Plants or Animals at a greater depth to ensure progression of knowledge and skills.  All teachers plan exciting, hands on investigations and experiments to further develop children's scientific knowledge and understanding. At Cedars, we believe that it is important to think and behave like a scientist in lessons and encourage the children to explore and come to their own conclusions based on their findings.
