Intent

INTENT

At OLPS we want to provide our children with a sound bank of knowledge about themselves and the world they live in.

Our science curriculum is based on relevant experiences that allow children to ask, investigate and explore questions by working scientifically whilst also encouraging them to develop a sense of awe and wonder.

We want our children to deepen their scientific knowledge so that they are equipped with the scientific vocabulary they need to be able to share what they know through speaking and listening opportunities and appropriate recording.

 

RATIONALE/AIMS

The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific        disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics 
  • Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through         different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • Are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and         implications of science, today and for the future.

Our science curriculum aims to:

  • Encourage children to ask and answer scientific questions.
  • Enable and support children to plan and carry out appropriate scientific investigations in a practical and engaging way, through the use of suitable equipment and resources including the use of computers.
  • Have a good knowledge and understanding of the following key areas for learning in   science;
      • The life processes of living things
      • The physical processes of materials, electricity, light, sound and natural forces.
      • Materials and their properties.
  • To engage children through cross-curricular teaching and providing them with hands-on         practical experiences, enabling them to leave Our Lady’s with the skills, knowledge and vocabulary they need.
