Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. We are proud to offer a curriculum which aims to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
Through a sequentially structured curriculum, children are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. The skills and knowledge are mapped out to ensure that pupils build on secure prior knowledge, some topics being revisited for children to explore on a deeper level and embed into the long-term memory.
Lessons and topics are ambitious and designed to improve children’s cultural capital enabling them to transfer skills across subjects and into later life. Children develop their oracy and understanding/use of language through the scientific vocabulary taught and revisited in lessons. ASPIRE is rooted in our Science curriculum as children develop resilience and integrity in carrying out pupil-led investigations and explore their own scientific enquiry.
