At Old Moat, we want our children to have the scientific skills necessary to understand how science is part of everyday life and to question everything. We do this by providing opportunities for the children to use equipment, conduct experiments and explain their theories confidently as they acquire and develop their skills in working scientifically.

The units of work are designed so that there is clear progression in their scientific skills and knowledge (including key vocabulary) from EYFS through to KS2.  (See the science progression in skills and knowledge overview in the downloads at the side of the page.) There are sometimes links between science and other subjects - see the term by term overview for English, science and humanities in the downloads at the side of the page.

In order to prepare our children for an ever-changing future, we want to inspire and support them to take an interest in the world around them, ask questions about what they see and become critical thinkers.
