Value in Everyone



Our intent in the teaching of Science is to enable all pupils to experience and observe the natural and humanly-constructed world around them. We encourage all children to be curious and ask questions about what they notice and to develop a sense of curiosity about natural phenomena.  Our aim is to allow children to use different types of scientific enquiry, observe changes and patterns, grouping and classifying and carrying out comparative tests.  Consequently we want our children to have the scientific skills to enable them to use Science to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse their findings.






We use formative assessment to measure the impact of our science curriculum, which is recorded and monitored on a tracking system. Evidence of learning and experiences can be found in books and through conversations with our children. The Science lead monitors the teaching and evidence of the subject through book and planning scrutinies, alongside observations of lessons and conversations with the staff team. Our Knowledge Organisers ,ongoing retrieval powerpoints (see Year Group page ) and many other activities and strategies  are used to revisit and recap prior learning, and to assess retained facts.
