Science

Science at Kempsey

Intent

 The 2014 National Curriculum 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 skills required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. We understand that it is important for lessons to have a skills-based focus, and that the knowledge can be taught through this

 

At Kempsey Primary School, we believe that teaching and learning in Science should excite and promote children’s natural curiosity, in order for them to better understand the world around them. Throughout their primary school journey, children are encouraged to use and build upon a wealth of working scientifically skills which are transferable both into other curriculum areas and into the children’s life outside of school.

 

Implementation

Our curriculum has been carefully planned by staff in order to ensure a full and comprehensive coverage of the National Curriculum, whilst also allowing for a range of enrichment opportunities to foster a sense of awe and wonder. At Kempsey, we have implemented a Science curriculum that is progressive, allowing for children to build on their prior knowledge and skills. Key scientific language is modelled and taught throughout lessons enabling our children to be familiar with and use vocabulary accurately. We are committed to providing exciting, hands on and practical experiences for all children at Kempsey Primary School. In turn this will help to promote independent learning, curiosity and a love for enquiry and knowledge.
