At Kingsfield, the aim of science is to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically and develop scientific enquiry skills. Our intent is to make child-led enquiry in science a priority, ensuring all children have opportunities to develop their Science capital.
Our curriculum is built around scientific enquiry skills which are embedded in each topic the children study. Topics are revisited and developed throughout their time at school allowing children to build upon their prior knowledge and increase their understanding in the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
At Kingsfield, our science curriculum is enriched through the use of cross-curricular links which makes learning purposeful and relevant. We endeavour to provide regular on and off-site subject or topic related experiences and give the children opportunities to learn outdoors where appropriate, making learning relevant to the local area. We further supplement our curriculum with engaging science weeks and by utilising experts from within the local and wider community.
At Kingsfield, children will develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about science. Our curriculum provides them with the necessary skills and knowledge to become young scientists and builds foundations for understanding the world that they can take with them once they complete their primary education.
