At Uplands we teach pupils to be scientists. For this to happen, our science curriculum is underpinned by the following core principles;

1) Where-ever possible, pupils learn through practical, hands on experiences

2) Pupils learn facts and build knowledge over time, using precise scientific vocabulary

The National Curriculum is sequenced in a way which builds knowledge and skills over time. They are given opportunities to ask questions and test their own ideas.Practical resources and activities help bring science alive in the classroom.
