Through an enquiry approach, and using the National Curriculum for science, we aim to ensure that all pupils: 

  • Are encouraged to be inquisitive and have a desire to find out answers to their own questions in class and with interest in the world around them. 
  • Develop resilience through seeing that they will not always get the results they expect and things will not always go right, alongside conversations about how the issue is noticed and resolved.
  • Understand how their learning of science is relevant and show curiosity about natural phenomena. 
  • Use technical vocabulary to explain what they are observing or the experiment they are conducting. 

For details of how we implement this within our school and how we measure the impact, please read our Science  policy.
