5. Science Overview 2023-24 for website

Science Intent

  • To provide the foundations to understand, question and explain the implications for Science today and for the future.
  • To develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
  • To have the understanding of different scientific enquiries to enable them to answer specific scientific questions as well as their own.


With this in mind, we have developed three main aims that demonstrate the focus for our school.


our children learn best when inspired and when they can see a ‘real purpose’ to what they are learning. This will encourage thinking and enable them to raise their own questions.


we want to encourage independent learners who have the skills to not only question the world around them but are fulfilled by being able to answer their own questions.


this will ensure children have a rich foundation of science allowing them to discuss and deepen their understanding further whilst making links to their prior learning.
