- develop scientific knowledge/conceptual understanding in biology, chemistry, physics;
- develop understanding of nature, processes and methods of science through science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them;
- children are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses / implications of science, today/in the future;
- experience and observe phenomena (Key Stage 1), broaden scientific view of the world (Lower Key Stage 2) deepen understanding of ideas (Upper Key Stage 2).
- a broad and balanced Curriculum Map in place that ensures continuity and progression throughout the science curriculum;
- well-judged and effective teaching strategies successfully engage pupils in their scientific learning – a hook, learning journey and high quality outcome will be in evidence in each unit of learning;
- they use their expertise, including their science subject knowledge, to develop pupils’ knowledge, skills and understanding in a structured way;
- well framed questions, knowledgeable answers and discussion, promotes deep learning, ensuring an appropriate ratio of exposition to activity in teaching.
Science forms part of our Connected Curriculum, based on EdisonLearning's scheme.
