Science Intent, Implementation and Impact

Science Intent
At St Faiths the children will deepen their knowledge of all areas of science

The subject encourages children to become competent at using investigative skills, through following lines of scientific enquiry outlined in the National Curriculum and EYFS curriculum.

 

 

Implementation of Science

  • We aim to encourage our children to remember knowledge and build on their prior learning by ensuring we carefully consider how knowledge is sequenced.
  • Through the use of the Progression and Skills Document (which is in line with EYFS and National Curriculum) teachers will plan for learning carefully throughout the year in order to ensure progress is made in each term and across each year group.
  • All learners will be assessed within their classes and then supported in line with the school’s commitment to inclusion, through careful planning that is adapted to stretch, guide and support every member of every class.

 

Impact

  • Children are confident in sharing their knowledge of science through discussion, recording in a variety of ways and their explanations about scientific testing.
  • They will have enjoyed practising a wide range of skills, demonstrating different types of scientific enquiry.
  • Children will be enthusiastic about the subject of science and will have made good progress in their knowledge and skills throughout their time in our school.

 

The distinctive Christian values of respect, compassion, trust, justice, friendship and community are promoted through the experiences we offer to every child, in all areas of the curriculum.
