One Childhood - One Chance


Science is an investigative and hands-on subject at Upton, taught within our topic based UBBC units.  With the topic as a starting point, children are encouraged to pose and investigate their own question and lines of enquiry.


We aim to provide pupils with the core scientific knowledge and processes to be able to answer questions about the world around them, whilst also allowing hands-on practical experiences in a variety of active situations. Underpinning all science at Upton are the skills of generating lines of enquiry, making predictions, analysing results, observing changes over time, collecting results in a variety of ways, drawing conclusions from their observations and evaluating method and the reliability of results.

We aim to follow and build on the National Curriculum, covering all the topic areas.  We encourage children to be inquisitive throughout their time at school and beyond. We develop pupils’ enjoyment and interest in science and an appreciation of its contribution to all aspects of everyday life. We aim to build on pupils’ curiosity and sense of awe of the natural world.
