Science teaching at Leigh Beck

At Leigh Beck we strive to ensure that our science lessons give our pupils an excellent understanding of the world around them.  We include practical resources in our science teaching as much as possible as we know that this engages our pupils with their learning. As much as possible, we try to link our science lessons with our class themes to enable pupils to link their learning with as many subjects as possible, as well as enabling us to exploit opportunities for cross curricular writing.  The 2014 National Curriculum is used to guide our teaching to provide us with the framework to ensure breadth and balance in our curriculum.  We use Rising Stars Science alongside the National Curriculum to supplement our planning.
