Caring - Curiosity - Courage



Our intent is to provide a science education that is engaging, challenging, and relevant to the lives of our young learners. We want them to develop a love of science and a sense of wonder about the world around them linking to our key value of curiosity. We also want them to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in science and in life.

Specifically, we intend for our pupils to:

Develop a strong foundation in the key concepts of science, such as the properties of matter, and the structure of living things.

Learn to think critically and solve problems using scientific methods.

Become proficient in using scientific tools and equipment.

Communicate their scientific findings clearly and effectively.

Develop a positive attitude towards science and a willingness to explore and learn.

In early years good science learning is all about fostering a love of science and a sense of wonder about the world around them.

By the end of the early years, we want our pupils to be able to:

Observe and describe the world around them.

Ask questions about the world around them.

Experiment and explore.

Communicate their ideas about science.

Work collaboratively on science projects.

Develop an appreciation for the natural world.
