Science Curriculum Intent
In science, our pupils progressively develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary through structured and creative experiences. They develop the ability to think independently and with confidence (self-belief) and demonstrate excellence in raising confidence about working scientifically and the knowledge and skills that it brings. Our pupils' confidence and competence in the full range of practical skills is encouraged and their curiosity is nurtured in, for example, planning and carrying out scientific investigations of discovery. Pupils demonstrate their perseverance to develop scientific knowledge, understanding vocabulary in written an oral explanations, solving challenging problems and reporting scientific findings. Our science curriculum inspires in our pupils high levels of originality, creativity and innovation in the application of skills. Our pupils' ability to work independently and collaboratively to undertake tasks is fostered in a variety of contexts, such as observing 'Our Changing World'. Our science curriculum is differentiated so that it is accessible to all learners and supports a range of learning styles.
Through this intent, we aim for our pupils' inspiration to develop a lifelong passion for science and its application in past, present and future technologies.
