Our aim to develop our STEM curriculum over the coming year to reflect the importance of skills learnt in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Our core STEM curriculum this year will focus on Science, Maths and Technology but we will provide pupils the opportunity to develop their Engineering skills through STEM enrichment activities.
Science in our school is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, as well as using and applying process skills.
Planning for science is a process in which all teachers are involved to ensure that the school gives full coverage of (National Curriculum Science and science in the Foundation stage). Science teaching in the school is about excellence and enjoyment. We adapt and extend the curriculum to match the unique circumstances of our school.
Computing is taught in both our ICT suite and in classrooms on laptops using Purple Mash. This is an online tool the enables children to explore and enhance their knowledge in a fun and creative way.
