“The important thing is to never stop questioning”

Albert Einstein


At Boughton-under-Blean & Dunkirk Methodist Primary School, we believe that science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through biology, chemistry and physics. We aim to stimulate curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do and teach methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought. We provide our children with a knowledge rich curriculum in which they can progress and thrive.


Science is a core subject in the Primary Curriculum and is an exciting area to explore. We study a varied curriculum, which encompasses all areas of the National Curriculum for science. This is carefully planned to build on knowledge year by year and covers the three scientific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.


Every year group across Key Stages 1 and 2 cover the majority of the primary science topics, with each class allowing time to revisit previously taught ideas and build upon these to help deepen understanding and see how things relate. Teaching a mix of topics and subject areas in each term, allows our children the time to delve into different exciting scientific concepts and visit their particular areas of interest regularly.


Where possible, we encourage our children to work scientifically, gain first hand experiences and challenge their own thinking. Our children enjoy having the time to discuss and carry out practical enquiries, apply previously taught knowledge and use key scientific enquiry skills.


At our school, we also enjoy British Science Week, in which we have a different focus each year and celebrate in a variety of ways. In recent years, we have included a visit from an Astrodome, had a whole school forensic investigation day and worked practically harnessing both awe and wonder.

Boughton–under–Blean & Dunkirk Primary School is committed to the principles and procedures of safeguarding pupils.
