Welcome to

Kenton Bar

Primary School




As a core subject, we place a great emphasis on teaching science in our curriculum at Kenton Bar Primary school. Science develops investigative and reasoning skills and helps children to understand the world around them.


In our Early Years Foundation Stage, we aim to:

  • Encourage children to explore the natural world around them and make observations. 

  • Develop the ability to find some similarities and differences between the natural world around them and contrasting environments. 

  • Develop children’s understanding of some important processes and changes in the natural world around them, including the seasons and changing states of matter. 


In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children study the National Curriculum for Science and we aim to:

  • Provide the foundations for understanding the world through specific disciplines (Biology, Chemistry and Physics)

  • Teach pupils the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science which are vital to the world’s future

  • Encourage pupils to use rational thinking to help explain a variety of phenomena

  • Encourage children to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes

  • Develop children’s excitement and curiosity of science.
