In science we aim to enthuse children’s love and curiosity about natural phenomena and events around them. We encourage children to explore confidently in order to develop and deepen their understanding of the world in which they live, explaining what is ocurring, predicting how things will behave and analysing causes. They learn to question and discuss science based issues that may affect their own lives, the directions of society and the future of the world, encouraging and supporting the development of science capital. Pupils will understand how major scientific ideas and specific scientists in the past have contributed toward societal change – impacting on industry, medicine, business and improving quality of life. By implementing an inclusive, progressive, creative and inspiring curriculum with real-life links, we ensure children have a meaningful conceptual understanding of the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. We encourage children to raise their own questions for exploration and develop transferable skills such as observation, communication and teamwork. By working scientifically, through tailored investigations involving planning, testing, recording and analysing results, children come to appreciate the nature of the learning process and its practical application to everyday experiences.
