Science Curriculum at Coppice


At Coppice we believe in child centred learning and seek to teach Science in a fun and stimulating way.  Teachers plan lessons using the objectives from the Early Learning Goals and Curriculum 2014 Science Curriculum.   Wherever possible teachers will plan science lessons and activities that link to the topics the children study.   Teachers will also make links to other subjects such as maths, literacy and PE to help the children make greater progress.  Opportunities for science teaching and learning occur every day, and at Coppice we encourage and embrace scientific thinking and questioning throughout the curriculum.

 Polar Explorer Community Event

We are thrilled to be part of the Polar Explorer Programme! This gives us a fantastic opportunity to delve into the World of Science. The programme aims to encourage and inspire children in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

It was fantastic to see so many children and parents at the Polar Explorer event - it was a great success! We had a great time investigating how the climate is affecting our environment and how we could survive in the Polar Regions, along with making habitats for the animals in our outside area!
