‘Bringing science to life for our young scientists of today'
Purpose and Aims
At NET, our Science curriculums aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Children will be taught the knowledge and skills to provide a secure foundation in ‘Understanding the World’ through the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
- Science is fundamental to understanding our lives and our futures and as such, it is a core subject.
- As scientists, children will develop their natural curiosity, questioning and evaluation of the world they live in.
- Children are ‘progressively’ taught skills to develop scientific enquiry to enable them to plan, predict, conduct and conclude investigations independently.
At the end of KS2, pupils will be able to:
- Ask and answer questions about scientific enquiry.
- Make predictions based on their prior scientific learning.
- Carry out investigations, observing over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying and grouping and conducting comparative and fair testing.
- Interpret evidence and explain findings using their science knowledge and technical vocabulary
We aim to teach pupils conceptually in order to develop a deeper level of understanding throughout their time at school. Teachers will impart essential knowledge that has been planned progressively, through the NET curriculum, beginning in EYFS and across key stage one and two.
