Here at Sudbury, our class teachers love to teach science! Pupils will be provided with opportunities to carry out practical experiments and apply their knowledge of science to the real world. They will be covering the New National Curriculum and linking their learning to the themed spiral curriculum wherever possible.


Pupils will be regularly assessed after each topic.


Below is an outline of what each child will cover during their time at Sudbury Primary.
