Science Intent

It is our intention at Upton Snodsbury to develop in all young people a lifelong curiosity and interest in the sciences. When planning for the science curriculum, we intend for children to have the opportunity, wherever possible, to learn through varied systematic investigations, leading to them being equipped for life to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them.

As children progress through the year groups, they build on their skills in working scientifically, as well as on their scientific knowledge, as they develop greater independence in planning and carrying out fair and comparative tests to answer a range of scientific questions. Each Science scheme of work ensures that children have a varied, progressive and well-mapped-out science curriculum that provides the opportunity for progression across the full breadth of the science national curriculum for KS1 and Lower KS2.The aims of our Science curriculum are to develop pupils who:

  • Are confident to explore the world around them.
  • Know how to gather and analyse data by completing experiments.
  • Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of science, including observational skills, identifying and classifying, and gathering and recording data.
  • Are equipped with the capability to use scientific enquiry.
  • Apply their learning in a range of contexts (school and home)
