The curriculum is designed to equip pupils with the skills to work scientifically, asking and answering their own questions through using a range of different enquiry types. Children will learn to be scientifically literate and have a strong understanding of scientific vocabulary in the curriculum.
From Nursery to Year 6 our pupils will build up knowledge, through revisiting key areas and building upon previous learning – embedding procedural knowledge into the long-term memory.
The aim of our science curriculum is to ensure that all pupils:
- become equipped with the scientific skills and knowledge to prepare them for the implications and uses of science for the future
- develop understanding of the processes and methods of science through a range of scientific enquiry that supports and encourage our children to ask and answer questions about the world around them
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding though topics related to biology, physics and chemistry.
