Subject Leader - Miss Hawtin
We aim for all children to be prepared for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world. Through our imaginative, purposeful, approach to science we strive to provide our children with an enjoyable experience. We encourage children to develop a deep and lasting interest about the world around them. We will link our learning with other subject areas to ensure that the knowledge and skills we generate are relevant and coherent for all children. We encourage children to develop a deep and lasting interest about the world around them by generating a shared aspiration linked to science and engineering and the careers it is an integral part of.
Clear and comprehensive thematic topic work in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and the National Curriculum. The Science Curriculum is planned for and covered in full within the EYFS and KS1 school curriculum.
• Help develop and extend our student’s scientific concept of the world they live in.
Children will have clear enjoyment and confidence in Science that they will then apply to other areas of the curriculum. We want our children to have a love of science and develop an interest in further study and work in this field. We want children to be able to retain knowledge and be able to articulate their understanding of scientific concepts using appropriate scientific vocabulary. We feel it is important that all children receive the opportunity to work collaboratively and practically to investigate and experiment. Our clear progression throughout early years and KS1 ensures children are continuing to practice and further their knowledge with the aim that the large majority of children will achieve age related expectations in science.
