At Luddenden CE, we recognise the importance of science in every aspect of daily life. We therefore make links to real life situations and provide exciting opportunities for children to investigate and learn from first-hand experiences.

The National curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics

  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them

  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future


Here at Luddenden CE, scientific enquiry skills are embedded in each topic the children study, and these topics are revisited and developed throughout their time at school. We want all children to have an understanding of the world around them, whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge, to help them think scientifically.

Please note; all our curriculum planning documents are designed and sequenced so that pupils build the intended knowledge and skills over time. The content for each year group will remain the same however the sequence of delivery may be altered for greater effect in response to the needs, interests and experiences of individual cohorts, groups or the whole school community.
