Science is a key aspect of the National Curriculum and relates to many other subject areas.  It provides children with the opportunity to explore and understand the world around them and learn about the impact of science today and for the future.
 
At Bramingham, we aim to promote  a curiosity about the world that we live in and develop many key skills to encourage the children to ask questions and deepen their understanding.
 
We deliver a science curriculum that builds upon prior knowledge and a progression of skills to ensure that the children have a secure understanding and knowledge of key science concepts.  Children will, through a range of experiences, develop their scientific enquiry skills to enable them to predict, plan fair tests, investigate and form conclusions.
 
 Please see below for the science long term school plan.
 
Please take a look at the Science Week page (under the children section of the website) to see some photos of the children's wonderful work and some of the fun activities they did.
