Through our Science curriculum, we aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they develop lifelong skills and knowledge.
We believe that our focus on ‘Big Questions’ encourages our pupils to increase their enjoyment and enthusiasm of Science while showing their independence, curiosity and commitment to working scientifically.
Our children will also develop the skills of observing, predicting, investigating and communicating through practical, hands on, real life experiences which will prepare our students for the world.
Aims and Intent
We want our children to be happy, independent and curious scientists who make connections with the world around them and develop as inquisitive, respectful and aspirational individuals.
Our Science curriculum aims to embed key knowledge and skills and enables children to develop the skills of prediction, hypothesising, experimentation, investigation, observation and interpretation.
Over time, we want our children to develop their knowledge of Science and working scientifically, so that they know more, remember more and understand more as they move through school.
We aim to use Science as a key driver to develop pupils’ skills as readers, writers, mathematicians and higher order thinkers.
Please see our Science policy for more details.
