“Bringing Learning to Life”

Duckpuddle Class (KS1)

Science in Key Stage 1

In Duckpuddle Class, through our exciting topic-based curriculum, we learn about the following science topics:

  • Animals Including Humans
  • Seasonal Changes
  • Everyday Materials
  • Plants
  • Living things and their Habitats
  • Working Scientifically


Science topics are often launched through exciting BIG BANGS that enthuse the children about their future learning. In Duckpuddle Class, this may involve a walk around our local village spotting signs of Spring, and then using our observations to create a seasonal display board in the classroom.


At the end of one of our Animal topic, we enjoy a wonderful Class Trip to Shepreth Wildlife Park. We travel on the train and see many of the animals we learn about in their real-life habitat.  


Lessons are highly interactive and wherever possible, are taught outside; containing as many awe and wonder moments as possible.
