The Subject Leader for science is Mrs. Peall


Science is one of the core subjects in the National Curriculum, along with maths and literacy. At Underwood, we aim to make our science teaching as creative and interactive as we can. Through science, the children develop a lifelong curiosity and begin to make links between science and their daily lives.


Scientific investigation is at the heart of what we do in science at Underwood. Throughout their time at this school, the children develop their skills in scientific enquiry to enable them to find out things for themselves and think creatively. Sometimes this involves practical investigations or using sources to find information. Our 2-year cycle of learning ensures that children have a varied, progressive and well-mapped-out science curriculum that provides the opportunity for progression across the full breadth of the science national curriculum for KS1 and KS2.


We teach all our science in a cross-curricular way. For example, science might support the literacy, maths or topic teaching and vice versa.
