At Yarlside Academy, 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 by supporting children to accumulate and connect knowledge, concepts and skills in order to make sense of the world.
Children at Yarlside Academy will develop enquiring minds and a spirit of curiosity through vibrant, interesting and fun lessons. We foster a natural curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence.
We use and adapt ‘CUSP’ to deliver a series of units which are deliberately spaced throughout the two key stages with opportunities to introduce and revisit key concepts. This approach enables pupils to deepen understanding and embed learning.
