As Science is a core subject, it is taught on a weekly basis and linked to the National Curriculum scheme of work. Where possible, we link the science topic to the current class topic in the hope that children see science within a context. In addition to this, we take part in an annual 'Science week' and make links with the local secondary schools. Assessment of Science is undertaken through the use of TAPS assessments which are all practical activities focusing on the Working Scientifically aspect of learning.
