Science

At Broadheath CE Primary School and Pre-School we strive to nurture young scientists through encouraging their curiosity and developing their understanding of how the world works.  We aim to expand their confidence to work scientifically and think critically.  We  provide our children with an understanding of scientific processes and the uses / implications of science in the past, today and for the future.

Our children in Pre-School and Reception begin to develop their enquiry skills through their topics.  Their understanding of the world is supported through learning about similarities and differences in relation to objects, materials and living things.  They will have the opportunity to explore and talk about the features of their immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another.  They will make observations of animals and plants, explaining why some things occur.

Our older children are following a curriculum based on the national curriculum.  They are taught in mixed age classes split into key stage one and key stage two.  Science is taught as a discrete subject to ensure coverage of the curriculum, but where possible meaningful links are made to topic.

Our curriculum intent in Science is:

To develop an understanding of scientific processes and how science impacts the world around them.

To acquire and use a range of skills such as questioning, problem solving, reasoning, observing, planning and investigating.

To equip pupils with the skills and knowledge to think and work scientifically.

To raise pupils’ awareness of scientists from history and modern society.

To gain an understanding of the uses and implications of science today and in the future.
