To ensure that high quality science is taking place throughout the whole school, we implement a curriculum which is progressive from EYFS through to Year 2. Teachers follow the science skills progression document that incorporates the National Curriculum objectives. The Science curriculum aims to inspire children’s curiosity and interest to explore the world that we live in and recognise that science is an exciting and crucial part of everyday life. Teachers plan and deliver quality lessons that increase children’s’ knowledge and understanding of our world, with developing skills associated with Science as a process of enquiry. We help develop the natural curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of investigations.
We listen to the questions our children have and equip them with the skills to follow their own lines of scientific enquiry themselves. This enables them to be independent, critical thinkers, weighing up evidence and develop their own opinions in a safe environment
OUR MISSION FOR SCIENCE:
- To inspire children to engage in learning, and be valued members of a caring, supportive, and successful school.
- For all our children to develop life-long learning skills; to be independent and creative thinkers and to be socially confident.
- To enable children to be successful through a curriculum that captures their interests, stimulates their ideas, encourages inquisitiveness and critical thinking and meets their needs.
