What is science ?
What does science look like at Lynsted ?
Science is a methodology, a practical way of finding reliable answers to questions we may ask about the world around us. Science in our school is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, as well as using and applying skills. We believe that a broad and balanced science education is the entitlement of all children, regardless of ethnic origin, gender, class, aptitude or disability.
We try to promote scientific thinking, observation, hypothesising and the design of fair and controlled experiments. We teach children to draw meaningful conclusions through reasoning and the evaluation of evidence, and to become effective communicators of scientific ideas, facts and data.

Here are the Cycle A planning documents which identified the skills and the knowledge the children need to know by year group. Teachers will give an assessment on the skills that they have taught at the end of each term.
