SCIENCE

Intent

The intent of our Science Curriculum aims to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically. We want them to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.


Implementation
The emphasis is on fun, engaging activities and is ambitious for all pupils. We want children to see science as an enjoyable experience. They will be given opportunities to work individually and cooperatively, listening to, and valuing, the opinions of others. Planning will build upon the learning and skill development of the previous years. Scientific skills are embedded into lessons to ensure these skills are being developed throughout the children’s time at Brookvale and new vocabulary is introduced. Children will observe, question, hypothesise, plan, measure, construct fair tests, communicate and draw conclusions. Science weeks, visits and specialists will be used to complement and broaden the curriculum.


Impact
All our children arrive with different starting points and all children will achieve their very best possible. We want our children to acquire the appropriate age-related knowledge linked to the science curriculum, but also skills which will equip them to progress from their different starting points, and within their everyday lives. They will be able to relate science to everyday life and appreciate its contribution both in the present, and historically, to our society and other cultures. Appreciate the nature of science and the importance of collecting evidence and how this can be used in different aspects of life and learning. We want them to be citizens who will be observant, curious and caring towards our environment.
