Cunningham Hill delivers the National Curriculum objectives through hands on, practical lessons with ‘working scientifically’ at its core. We learn about plants, animals, habitats, changing seasons and much more. We expect all of our children to be able to use the correct vocabulary for each topic and to remember it long after the topic is over. We plan for high level vocabulary that is suitable yet challenging for our children. Children are given many opportunities to carry out practical observations within our school grounds as well as researching footage for things we cannot observe in school. Children will plan, carry out and evaluate experiments and observations throughout their time here and by the end of Year 2 we expect that they are able to do this independently with confidence.

Knowledge Organisers

Knowledge organisers summarise the learning for each topic in a child friendly way.  We use them in class to support our learning and revisit past topics, feel free to use them at home.
