Intent - What do we intend children to learn through Science?
In Science, we expect all children to learn new scientific concepts that build upon prior knowledge to enable them to know more and remember more. The Science curriculum is carefully sequenced so that there is a clear progression of scientific knowledge and skills from Reception to Year 6, matching the expectations of the National Curriculum. Our Science curriculum is designed to promote a curiosity, awe and wonder of the world we live in. Through enquiry and practical experiences, we aim to enhance children’s scientific knowledge. We expect children to understand the relevance and implications of science today and in the future on a local and broader scale. As with History and Geography, Science will be based around our RPS values and we expect children to explore themes around Respect, Pride and Success as they progress through our school. Children will be immersed in the Science curriculum when it is the driving subject in the summer term STEM based topic.
