Our Intent for Science
At SS Peter and St Paul Primary school, we intend to develop children’s curiosity about the world through their science lessons. Children will discover the way the scientific world works, investigate about the role of science in daily life and challenge their views on the scientific world.
Our science curriculum is based around enquiries where the learners work collaboratively to investigate questions, conduct experiments and evaluate findings. Children are encouraged to ask questions and these are used to shape learning. At the beginning of a new topic, children will be asked to recall prior knowledge and consider what they would like to learn about the topic. This is repeated during the term and used within the lessons to guide learning.
Learners are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict outcomes, and analyse causes. Learners will develop key scientific vocabulary, which supports the acquisition of scientific knowledge and a deeper understanding of topics covered.
All children will be provided with a broad and balanced science curriculum which reflects the equality and diversity policies and practice in school. Teachers will expose children to high quality teaching, first-hand experiences and adapt learning for the needs of all pupils. We aim to prepare our children for an ever-changing scientific and technological world.
