Science Progression

Science Progression at Southfield

At Southfield we work closely with Eastrop Infant school and Warneford to ensure that our children's scientific knowledge and skills build upon what they have learnt in Key Stage 1.
They are encouraged to investigate new concepts and familiar topics in more detail, to increase their scientific vocabulary, knowledge and questioning skills to allow them to smoothly transition into Key Stage 3.

Working Scientifically - Progression Document for Southfield

At Southfield we carefully use the National Curriculum's Working Scientifically and Programmes of Study documents to plan interactive lessons for all year groups. This ensures all pupils build on prior key scientific skills and knowledge and are challenged to think more scientifically about their work and investigations.
