Longcause Community Special School Learning for Life




We all live in a world where science is all around us.  Whether it is deciding what we are going to eat in order to stay healthy, looking after a favourite pet, understanding how the lights in our house work, knowing why the seasons change or understanding how scientists can help the police catch criminals, it is important that we all learn the various scientific strands and how they help shape our lives.  


At Longcause we saw the introduction of the new National Curriculum (2014) as an exciting opportunity to write a science curriculum which takes into account how our pupils learn and so allows us to show the wonderful progress our pupils make within this area.


In science our pupils are encouraged to make links between ideas they have learnt and things that they have seen within their every day lives, they are also encouraged to explain what they have seen.


Science work at Longcause is focused upon practical observation, investigation and experimentation.
