We have a strong understanding of the world around us whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help us to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific process and also an understanding of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.

Scientific enquiry skills are embedded in each topic we study and these topics are revisited and redeveloped throughout our time at school. We build upon our prior knowledge and increase our enthusiasm for the topics, whilst embedding this knowledge into the long-term memory.

We are encouraged to develop and use a range of skills including observations, planning and investigations, as well as being encouraged to question the world around us and become independent learnings in exploring possible answers for our scientific based questions.

We communicate using specialist vocabularly for each topic taught. We use effective questioning to communicate ideas. Concepts taught are reinforced by focusing on the key features of scientific enquiry, so that we learn to use a variety of approaches to answer relevant scientific questions.
