Science Curriculum

At Farnborough Road Infant School we are super scientists! We want all our children to love science. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be astronauts, doctors, dentists, forensic scientists, chemical engineers, medical researchers, toxicologists, microbiologists, environmental scientist…

Science helps us gain an understanding of the world around us.  We aim to stimulate our children’s curiosity and creative thoughts.  We want to give them the confidence and skills to ask questions and investigate the wonders of our world and beyond.  We will help our children learn the importance of how to care for, and respect, ourselves and our planet.


Curriculum Intent

Our science curriculum promotes curiosity and empowers our children to become independent and resilient learners. 

The FRIS science curriculum not only meets National Curriculum requirements but will provide memorable science lessons that will develop their science capital and prepare them for the next stage in their education.

Annual Science & Technology Week, visits from health care professionals, Science shows and assemblies, Science clubs


Curriculum Implementation

The science curriculum has been carefully built and the learning opportunities and assessment opportunities for each year group ensure progression and repetition in terms of embedding key learning, knowledge and skills. 

For example:  hands on activities, sequenced curriculum, enriching vocabulary

Curriculum Impact

We strive for every child to achieve their full potential in science, develop a love and respect of the world around them, be ready for their next stage in learning and inspire aspirations for the future career paths.

At Farnborough Road Infant School, we are Super Scientists!
