At Lime Academy Abbotsmede pupils are taught science through units taken from the EduKent Science or IPC schemes of work. Units taught in each year group are based upon the national curriculum framework of study for science. Each unit either has a biology, physics or chemistry focus.
Within each science lesson pupils gain key scientific knowledge about their topic. Lessons are planned so that there is also a scientific skills focus, to enable pupils to gain a better understanding of the methods used in scientific investigation. Across the course of the year pupils will learn how to work scientifically by making observations, looking for patterns, classifying and grouping, fair testing and using secondary sources.
Scientific work is recorded in science books, as well as through work added to display and photographs of investigative work.
