Science Curriculum Intent
Science teaching at Stoneydelph Primary School 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, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of Science within the wider world, their own experiences and to prepare and equip them for the world of today and tomorrow.
We seek to encourage and support all children to develop and foster a natural curiosity and enthusiasm to explore the world around them and to question and discuss their learning in an open and safe manner.
Science Impact Statement
A range of extra-curricular activities are arranged for pupils in our provision throughout each academic year. Parents are invited to share in these experiences with their children.
In addition, we measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:
- A reflection on standards achieved against a progressive ‘essential skills’ ladder from Cornerstones;
- A carefully mapped Science curriculum;
- A celebration of learning during ‘Science Weeks’ which demonstrates progression across the school;
- Pupil discussions about their learning.
