Our intention when planning and delivering the science curriculum is to foster and develop our pupils’ curiosity in the subject, whilst equipping pupils with knowledge, skills and understanding they need to become competent scientists. Throughout the programmes of study, the children acquire and develop the key knowledge that has been identified within each unit that links to the three areas of science: biology, chemistry and physics. Teachers will activate prior knowledge in science and make links to other curriculum areas to provide opportunities for children to make connections and remember more. They will develop deeper knowledge of key skills and master their learning through stimulating and challenging wider experiences. We aim to increase children’s aspirations in science and make connections to their own lives by providing children with examples of a range of diverse scientists and careers in science. We will ensure that the Working Scientifically skills are built-on and developed so that they can apply their knowledge of science when using equipment, building arguments and explaining concepts confidently using scientific vocabulary. We encourage children to ask questions and to be curious about the world around them.
