In our science curriculum we have the following key aims.  We want to see the pupils:

  • Gaining scientific knowledge;
  • Co-operating with the teacher and other pupils in planning, decision making, investigating and communicating results;
  • Developing the skills of observing, classifying, recording, making and testing hypotheses, designing experiments and drawing inferences from evidence;
  • Reflecting on outcomes and the strategies which have led to them, leading to prediction and further planning;
  • Taking responsibility for an investigation when the outcome is not obvious;
  • Responding to stimulus provided by the teacher, in ways which show imaginative thinking and that the intellectual demand and pace of work is appropriate for them;
  • Relating their work to everyday experience;
  • Enjoying themselves and showing curiosity, perseverance, self-discipline and ingenuity;
  • Extending their scientific vocabulary.
