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.
Science is taught each week at Stoneydelph to ensure high quality and impactful learning for all of our pupils.

During our Science week, we had lots of fun learning about the way our world could look in the future and the way that what we do now could impact our future world. We did lots of experiments, designing and evaluating and worked with some very exciting visitors. Our visitors included; Exotic Zoo, Shell Energy, Jaguar Land Rover and Silly Science Workshops. We also held a competition to see who could create the best invention to help in the Classroom of tomorrow.  We have a great time and really enjoyed sharing our learning.
