At Burfield Academy, we provide a high-quality science education that provides pupils with the foundations to understand the world around them, through biology, chemistry and physics. This begins in EYFS when pupils identify common animals and name parts of plants, to studying evolution and plant reproduction in year 6. Our approach to teaching science follows our science paradigm which places knowledge and enquiry at the centre of the learning. Through investigations, we develop our pupil's scientific skills of predicting, observing and recording data. This aids our children to apply the knowledge learnt to formulate a conclusion.
