Our Science Curriculum Intent

Our Science aims to develop in all young people a lifelong curiosity and interest in the sciences. When planning for the science curriculum, we intend for children to have the opportunity, wherever possible, to learn through varied systematic investigations, leading to them being equipped for life to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them. As children progress through the year groups, they build on their skills in working scientifically, as well as on their scientific knowledge, as they develop greater independence in planning and carrying out fair and comparative tests to answer a range of scientific questions. We help children retain the science knowledge they have learnt and also reinforce key scientific vocabulary from each topic. We also ensure that children have a varied and progressive science curriculum that provides the opportunity for progression across the full breadth of the science national curriculum for KS1 and KS2.
