Subject Lead: Mrs Backhouse

At Catchgate we aim for our children to develop the ability to logically sequence ideas so that they are able to concisely explain what they discover. We also aim to develop scientific thinking through enquiry and practical science lessons.


The curriculum has been organised so that the children’s knowledge and skills progress each year from when they first come to Catchgate until they leave. The curriculum is designed so that children make links between the different scientific topics set out in the National Curriculum. Scientific skills have also been organised to ensure progression but they will also be repeated throughout a child’s school life to ensure that they are embedded when the children leave Catchgate School.
