Year 6 Science


Science stimulates and excites children’s curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. It links direct practical experience with ideas, and therefore engages children's interest at many levels.

Children are taught to discriminate, classify, recognise relationships and select information from a variety of sources. They develop skills in hypothesising, testing and evaluating ideas, and communicating using scientific language, drawings, charts and tables.

Sex and Relationship Education - The Governors’ Policy

In addition to the Science curriculum, which covers areas such as the life cycle, growth and development, children in Upper Key Stage 2 are offered a programme of Sex and Relationship Education. This is organised by Classteachers, and parents are invited to view the materials in advance. The programme is optional, as parents have the right to withdraw their children. However, we believe it is an important part of children’s education and strongly encourage participation.
