Science at St Giles Primary
At St Giles we have shaped our science curriculum to ensure it is fully inclusive to every child. Our aims are to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum for Science:
- To develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
- To 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.
- Children are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
We aim for a high quality science curriculum, which inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about science and that of the wider world. To do this we ensure high standards of teaching and learning in science and we implement a curriculum that is progressive throughout the whole school.
Our Science Curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making good or better progress.
At St Giles Primary School, our vision is to teach a science curriculum which will excite our children and ignite their curiosity. It will enable them to gain knowledge and skills, whilst giving them the opportunities to explore and discover the world around them with confidence and independence.
In order to achieve this, children will have the opportunity to take part in investigations, experiments, trips and speak to outside visitors which will give the children practical hands on experiences to encourage curiosity and questioning.
The curriculum will enable children to extend their scientific knowledge, skills and vocabulary in order to give the children the skills to succeed.
