Intent for Science

Through Science, we encouarge children to foster a positive relationship with the subject, focussing on developing their resilience, independence and confidence. All Year 1 to 6 children have regular teaching of Science. these lessons tecah children specific content, scientific investigatory and science enquiry skills through structured, well-prepared lessons that are clearly differentiated and varied to challenge all chidlren. The learning encouarges chidlren to be risk takers, to be resourceful and reflective whilst developing a positive attitude to the world around them.

Early Years children also engage in structured science activities - these may be adult-led sessions or independent, child-led science investigations, which encouarge personal development.

To develop a love of Science, a high quality Science education provides the foundations for understanding the world. Science is at the forefront of change and is vital to the world's future prosperity. through building key foundation knowledge and concepts, our children are encouarged to recognise the power or rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
