Science is a core subject in the National Curriculum. The fundamental skills, knowledge and concepts of the subjects are currently set out in “Science in the National Curriculum” where they are categorised into four attainment targets. 

  1. Scientific enquiry, which is taught through contexts taken from; 
  1. Life processes and Living things
