Scientific knowledge is embedded in each carefully designed lesson, which adopts the 7E planning cycle.
Lessons explicitly develop pupils' scientific enquiry skills; making lessons practical therefore promoting curiosity.
Lesson content is planned to build on children’s previous knowledge as well as introduce new ideas and concepts. Topics are revisited and developed throughout their time at Belvoirdale: Topics such as Animals including Humans is taught at Key Stage One and studied again at greater depth throughout Key Stage Two. This model allows children to build upon their prior knowledge and increases their enthusiasm for the topics.
