Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


Science Implementation
Science is taught weekly with a key idea/question investigated within each unit. Scientific knowledge and skills are taught in conjunction with each other. Where possible, children are given the opportunity to link their learning to mathematics through the use of measurement and statistics. Most units are taught more than once throughout the primary phase to enable core knowledge to be revisited and built upon. Where there is only one unit, knowledge is periodically revisited and assessed to ensure this has not been forgotten.
