Science has a high profile in Fens Primary School. Staff are committed to providing a balanced curriculum that provides every child with high quality pathways for learning, that channel pupils’ natural curiosity for the universe around them.

In a range of ‘real life’ contexts, pupils are supported in actively investigating scientific phenomena that arise in an increasingly scientific and technological world. Pupils are encouraged to develop knowledge of scientific methods; analysing evidence and evaluating their findings.

Science is a fantastic platform that offers a range of contexts for the development of literacy, mathematics, ICT and PSHE&C. At Fens we are confident that learning and progress are at their highest levels when engagement is at its highest level. We promote pupils’ engagement by offering a wide range of practical contexts that encourage children’s application of scientific understanding both within, and beyond the classroom.
