Science Curriculum Intent Statement

In Science, our intent for the curriculum is to ensure that students are able to work independently and scientifically to deeply key scientific concepts surrounding 5 principles, and articulate these using key scientific terminology. By working scientifically, students will understand of the nature, processes and methods involved in scientific enquiry, problem solving and analysis of data.

 

Science Vision & Purpose

Science encapsulates a huge amount of what goes on within us, and around us. It is a critical part of STEM learning, and this cross- curricular nature gives the understanding needed to address global challenges as part of a wider society. Skills gained through independent enquiry can be applied to other aspects of learning and life experiences, as well as giving students an opportunity to hone their communication and use of language to articulately express opinions and knowledge they have acquired.

 

The key principles that underpin our Science curriculum in Key Stage 3 are:

 

 

The development of Scientific skills are embedded throughout each principle, and is key to the acquisition of both theoretical and practical knowledge in all areas of science study.

 

 

 

 

Our philosophy

Through inspiring and knowledgeable teaching, we aim for students to understand and appreciate the role of scientific concepts in all aspects of their lives and the environment. Students will develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena, and their own role in the global challenges that society currently faces. They will become articulate communicators who have the skills needed to critically investigate key questions, and evaluate written and numerical information to reach their own informed conclusions on key ideas.
