Overview (EYFS being reviewed for 2023): Science Overview

We teach science at Holy Trinity in order to nurture the natural curiosity and to enrich the experience our children have of the wider world.

Science teaching is designed to encourage children to ask questions and to develop the skills needed to explore possible answers.

Our curriculum is organized in line with the National curriculum framework to ensure a breadth and balance of science knowledge; covering the three traditional disciplines – chemistry, physics and biology.


Class newsletters will inform you of the topics being covered each term.

You can support your child by talking to them about their learning. Encourage children to ask questions and about the world around them.

BBC bitesize is a good website to explore with your child

“Exploration and Discovery” is the theme of our Science Week planned for W/b 21st October 2019.

This will be a fun week with plenty of opportunities for hands on experiences.
