Our Science curriculum aims to provide all children with an enjoyable, engaging and inspiring Science education which includes a range of experiences, forming a life-long love of Science. Our Science curriculum teaches children the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to question and understand concepts and phenomena that occur in the world around them and to equip them with the motivation to seek explanations for these. Using the Switched on Science scheme to support our teaching, children will learn the skills required for scientific enquiry and they will begin to appreciate the way science will affect their future on a personal, national and global level.
Teachers will be:
¶ Creating opportunities to explore their local area;
¶ Incorporating case studies to develop their understanding of the wider world;
¶ Encouraging enquiry and questioning; and
¶ Developing map reading skills.
We hope this foundation will provide them with a good understanding of Science in order to support further learning at secondary school and beyond.
