Science is a key part of our curriculum. Throughout history, science has changed our lives and at Silver Springs we encourage a sense of excitement and curiosity about the world around us. We encourage our children to think about what happens around them and justify their answers.


Our children study biology, chemistry and physics. It is important that our children have the knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts, however scientific enquiry plays a massive part in our science curriculum. Scientific enquiry involves observing over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying and grouping; comparative and fair testing (controlled investigations); and researching using secondary sources.


For more information about which objectives are covered in every year group, please see our curriculum maps.
