Science

Intent

At our school, our science curriculum is designed with a strong intent to foster curiosity and encourage children to question the world around them. We believe in creating young minds that are naturally inquisitive and have a thirst for knowledge. Our curriculum aims to inspire and empower children to explore, discover, and make sense of the scientific wonders that surround them.
Through engaging and hands-on activities, we aim to ignite a sense of wonder and curiosity in our students. We encourage them to ask questions, investigate, and seek answers independently. By developing their questioning skills, we enable them to think critically, analyse information, and develop a deeper understanding of scientific concepts.
We promote a growth mindset within our science curriculum, emphasising that it's okay to make mistakes and learn from them. We encourage children to embrace challenges and view them as opportunities for growth. By nurturing their scientific curiosity, we aim to develop problem-solving skills, boost creativity, and enhance their ability to think outside the box.
Our Science curriculum also emphasises the importance of collaboration and communication. Through group projects, discussions, and presentations, we provide opportunities for children to share their findings, exchange ideas, and learn from one another. We believe that fostering a supportive and collaborative learning environment helps children develop strong interpersonal skills and become effective communicators.
Overall, our science curriculum intends to create lifelong learners who are not afraid to question, explore, and seek answers. By nurturing their curiosity, critical thinking skills, and scientific mindset, we aim to equip our children with the tools necessary to navigate and contribute to an ever-evolving world.

Implementation

Children will work scientifically focussing on the following areas: observing, classifying, finding patterns, research and fair testing.

Alongside encouraging children to enjoy and engage in Science, our main goals when teaching Science are:

To encourage children’s curiosity and allow them to ask questions and develop the skills they need to answer those questions about scientific phenomena through different types of scientific enquiries. This will be achieved by children working scientifically through the range of science-based units of learning across school.

To develop children’s substantive knowledge, vocabulary and disciplinary knowledge through a knowledge rich curriculum which is mapped out in the Science Progression document.  This is also encouraged by lots of practical science activities in classes across school.
