Science Subject Intent

At Stag Lane the Science curriculum nurtures a healthy curiosity in children about our universe and promotes respect for the living and non-living. We believe science encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes. Throughout the programme of study, children will develop an understanding of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science to answer scientific questions about the world around them, through different types of enquiries.

Children will be equipped with the scientific skills required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. We understand that it is vital for children to be enquiry-based learners and lessons will be skills-based to encourage children to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
