At William Stockton, to ‘get better at Science’ will mean that children learn to use every opportunity to incorporate practical investigations and activities within their science learning. This helps our pupils to learn and retain new knowledge and vocabulary. Our aim is that these stimulating and challenging experiences help every child secure and extend their scientific knowledge.

I have been the Science lead for four years and have always had a great love of Science. My passion for the subject has grown throughout my time as subject lead. I have learned a great deal through the PSQM programme (Primary Science Quality Mark Programme) by working closely with other professionals to improve Science in our school. We were incredibly proud to have achieved the Science mark and we aim to keep improving in this subject. Miss Forshaw and Mrs Beamish joined the Science team last year and share the same belief that Science is an awe inspiring, mind blowing subject that we want the children at William Stockton to love.
We have been developing our Science curriculum for the past 18 months and we feel that it is now well planned and well sequenced. We have agreed on clear end points that includes the core knowledge that, we believe, the children need to achieve well in Science and in becoming a better scientist. Our Science curriculum ensures that our children learn and develop a range of subject specific and transferable skills that equip our learners for future learning. A broad spectrum of the Science curriculum is delivered in order to accomodate and challenge pupils of all abilities; we adapt our teaching to suit the children's needs.
