How was our Imperial science curriculum developed?
At Imperial Avenue we ensure that science is planned and organised so that children’s learning is built up progressively over time. We also value hands on engaging science that promotes a love of learning in a practical way. Children will learn to think scientifically and give reasons for their predictions. To learn more about our curriculum please look at the science overview below which breaks down what is taught in each term, children will learn this information within their weekly science session.
We ensure full coverage of the Science National Curriculum and EYFS framework strand Understanding the World.
What do pupils at Imperial say about science?

“They hatched from one of the eggs… they were so fluffy” – Year 1 children recalling the chick experience from their time in reception
