Science curriculum



At The Faber Catholic Primary School, we strive to promote the love of learning science and for children to understand and be curious about the science within their everyday lives. We promote the importance of an investigative approach through regular 'hands on' experiences wherever possible. It is our intention that we use specialist teachers in Key Stage Two to create good foundation skills in preparation for High School. We aim for all children to work scientifically during lessons and work collaboratively investigating different concepts and ideas.



In order to allow children to reach their full potential, we cover the objectives set out in the Programmes of Study in the National Curriculum. We mix the content, knowledge and investigation skills needed to solve science problems and make decisions and predictions based on what they have learned. Our lessons also allow the children to practise their maths and English whilst developing their reasoning and problem solving skills.
