Children are naturally inquisitive and like to explore the world around them. We treasure our children’s curiosity and maximise it through innovative teaching which fosters their enjoyment and interest for the subject. Children at Uley thoroughly enjoy asking questions, designing investigations and carrying out their own practical experiments.

We help our pupils to become confident investigators and enjoy both independent and group-based tasks. We aim to ensure that children learn and develop the necessary skills of enquiry required to be an able scientist and support them in developing their understanding of how to:

•carry out fair tests;
•make logical predictions;
•record results accurately;
•use ICT to create appropriate charts and graphs; and
•make conclusions about their learning, using appropriate scientific knowledge, understanding and vocabulary.


Science Curriculum Intent



Science Rolling Programme

KS1 Progression in Science

KS2 Progression in Science

Scientific Enquiry Progression



The impact and measure of science is to ensure children not only acquire the appropriate age related knowledge linked to the science curriculum, but also skills which equip them to progress from their starting points, and within their everyday lives.

All children will have:

  • A wider variety of skills linked to both scientific knowledge and understanding, and scientific enquiry/investigative skills.
  • A richer vocabulary which will enable to articulate their understanding of taught concepts.
  • High aspirations, which will see them through to further study, work and a successful adult life.
