Welcome to the science online classroom.

Science is a big focus at Nunthorpe. We teach it through practical investigation, which encourages children to think independently and to work successfully and collaboratively in teams. Our science leader is Mrs K Hamilton, who teaches science from Y2 to Y6.

Science is taught in each year group as follows:-

  • EYFS – embedded in the EYFS curriculum.
  • Y1 – Science lessons each week taught by the Year 1 teacher plus two cross curricular topics, lasting several weeks.
  • Y2 to Y6 – Science lessons each week taught by Mrs Hamilton plus two cross curricular topics in each year group, lasting several weeks, taught by Mrs Hamilton and the class teacher.

The topics in each year group are as follows:
