Through a planned coherent curriculum in Science pupils will understand why science is so important, and become scientifically curious with an enthusiasm for learning increasing amounts of Scientific knowledge about the world around them. They will develop and progress their skills in:
- Planning, communication and sources.
- Enquiring, testing, obtaining and presenting evidence
- Observing and recording
- Considering and evaluating evidence
To do this they will develop the confidence to embrace curiosity and experience the awe and wonder of increasing their scientific knowledge and understanding. Methods, processes and uses of science will be explored; developing a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena which will enable pupils to develop the confidence and ability to ask, investigate, answer and explain questions about the world around them. All pupils will learn to think, discuss, investigate, share and learn as scientists
At KS1 they learn this through focussed studies and investigations of Plants, Animals, including humans, Living things and habitats, Materials.
At KS2 they continue to learn, develop and progress their skills through further focussed studies and investigations of Plants, Animals, including humans, Living things and habitats, Materials, Chemical Processes, Earth and Evolution, Forces, Light and Electricity.
