At Coughton CofE Primary School, we value Science. WE ARE SCIENTISTS! A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. At Coughton, we teach essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes through practical investigation.


We follow Developing Experts which provide:

  • Sequenced lessons that are mapped against the National Curriculum, with a focus on prior learning
  • Lesson plans and engaging presentations which take pupils all around the world
  • Fully resourced, editable lessons and assessment tools
  • A focus on ‘working scientifically skills’ through investigations and practical activities
  • Quizzes to assess understanding for effective retrieval practice
  • Key scientific vocabulary, with words from tiers 1 - 3
  • Activities to encourage higher order thinking and link scientific concepts to the real world
  • Links to the world of STEM and careers, with personalised career guidance
