At Southbourne Junior School, we believe that learning should be irresistible, varied, relevant and appropriate to every child’s needs. Through our Science curriculum, we endeavour to increase children’s science capital, empowering them to think scientifically, to develop curiosity and ask questions about the world around them to directly impact their lives and to look to the future. Our curriculum is about developing our 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 processing skills.

'In science I have learnt about classification keys. I loved these because they are an easy way to understand what something is. Something I enjoyed in the tipi is turning solids into liquid into gas, this demonstrated the different stages that atoms go through.' Year 4 scientist.
'I have enjoyed science because we learnt about teeth and made jaw size clay sculptures of teeth. We also experimented with eggs which told me that different drinks make our teeth decay.' Year 4 scientist
