White Rose Science takes the highly successful approach we pioneered with White Rose Maths and transfers it to the primary science curriculum. It uses a “small steps” approach to science teaching, and closely
follows the national curriculum for science for years 1 - 6. It gives specialist and non-specialist teachers a one stop solution as they help children develop scientific understanding and grasp scientific ideas.
White Rose Science teaches practical approaches to science and scientific language in a fun and logical way.
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. Comprehensive training courses support the implementation of White Rose Science in schools.
Our 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.
The key to the success of White Rose Science is our small steps approach. We break down the essential aspects of key stage science into easily digestible chunks.
Through experiment, practice and discussion, children gain core knowledge around:
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.
We’ve developed White Rose Science with those goals in mind.
Like all White Rose resources, our primary science curriculum is broken down from years into blocks and from blocks into easy, logical steps. That’s great for both children and their teachers:
The basic structure of each small step is the same, letting teachers and pupils approach every topic with confidence.
The schemes of learning will be available free of charge, with supporting premium content available at an additional cost.
Resources will start to be released in early June and all autumn content will be online by the end of August, including the schemes of learning and a supporting worksheet for every small step. Spring content will be released between October and December, with summer materials added from February to April 2024.
Science CPD will also be available to book from September.
Costs shown are for 12 months access.
