The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Science is planned in a way to ensure consistent progression and coverage. We aim to develop children’s natural curiosity about the world around them using a range of resources and strategies. We try to promote scientific thinking, observation, hypothesising and the design of fair and controlled experiments. We teach children to draw meaningful conclusions through reasoning and the evaluation of evidence, and to become effective communicators of scientific ideas, facts and data.

We use the outside environment as much as possible to help our children engage with their world. The school is lucky enough to have a woodland next to the school and we a to plan to use it regularly within our work.

We also have a wetland which we will be looking at developing this academic year in the summer. We have been lucky enough to have had slow worms moved to this wetland a few years ago following a housing development.

Here is the new skills progression we will be trialing over the summer and which will be embedded for September.
