Science at Kennall Vale

Science coverage:
Kennall Vale has mixed-age classes so teaches science over a two year cycle. The document below shows the learning journey of each cohort.
Five types of enquiry:
Kennall Vale works hard to teach the five enquiry types. Planning explicitly shows teachers which type they are focussing their teaching on. Learning objectives have dual coded symbols to clearly show children, too.
Science stories:
Each science unit begins with a story that links to the learning. Teachers use this as an opportunity to assess children's prior knowledge. The books promote children's questioning and these are recorded in our science floor books.
Working scientifically:
KVS focuses on working scientifically skills in every lesson. To ensure coverage and progression, the skills are mapped out in the planning and displayed on the learning objectives, too. T
