Happy | Safe | Achieving




Science is a core subject in the National Curriculum. The fundamental skills, knowledge and concepts of the subject are categorised into programmes of study. At Ghyllgrove we teach science through a topic based curriculum ensuring each programme of study is taught throughout the year and across all key stages. 

  • Working scientifically
  • Plants, animal, humans, evolution & inheritance
  • Living things and their habitats
  • Materials, rocks  and states of matter
  • Forces and magnets
  • Earth and space
  • Light, sound and electricity


At Ghyllgrove Primary School we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. We encourage children to be inquisitive throughout their time at our school and beyond. Our science curriculum engages children to become curious about the world around them and it enables them to develop a range of scientific skills. We aim to expose our children to a rich and broad scientific language which will be built on and revisited in different year groups and across different key stages.
