Science

Intent

 

We at Woodcote Primary School aim to develop a fun, practical, engaging and high-quality curriculum that inspires the next generation to succeed and excel in science. Children will develop an inquisitive approach to the world around them, underpinned by sound knowledge and vocabulary.

 

We will do this through fully adhering to the aims of the national curriculum and fostering a healthy curiosity and interest in the sciences. At the heart of our science curriculum is scientific investigation. Wherever possible we intend to deliver lessons where children learn through varied investigations, leading to them being equipped for life to ask and answer scientific questions about their experiences in the world. They will be able to reach logical conclusions and reason their theories effectively.
