At Weston On Trent, we use the White Rose Science scheme to support our teaching and learning. It teaches practical approaches to science and scientific language in a fun and logical way using the latest up to date research.


At the same time, it provides teachers with all the guidance and supporting materials they need to plan and deliver a high quality science education. 


The schemes of learning provide full coverage of the national curriculum for science but don’t stop there. They also cover scientific questions around sustainability and the planet, and help children develop an empathy for the local and wider environment.


Through experiment, practice and discussion, children gain core knowledge around:

  • Scientific vocabulary
  • ‘Working scientifically’ skills including systematic and careful observations and following practical scientific methods
  • The gathering and interpretation of straightforward scientific evidence
  • The use of everyday materials and scientific equipment to solve science problems
  • Articulating scientific concepts and using five types of science enquiries


At Weston On Trent, we believe that children should be taught science in a way that helps nurture an understanding of the value of scientific skills. We think science learning should be engaging and inspiring and the White Rose scheme supports us excellently in doing just that.
