At Kingston we  strive to ensure that our science lessons give our pupils an excellent understanding of the world around them.  We include practical resources in our science teaching as much as possible as we know that this engages our pupils with their learning. As much as possible, we try to link our science lessons with our class themes to enable pupils to link their learning with as many subjects as possible.  The 2014 National Curriculum is used to guide our teaching in years 1, 3, 4 and 5. These documents provide us with the framework to ensure breadth and balance in our curriculum. Our Foundation Stage follows their own curriculum and for this academic year pupils in years 2 and 6 will follow the old curriculum as this is what they will be tested on in 2015.
