The intent for our Science curriculum at Roseberry is to ensure that all pupils develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding in order to further comprehend the world they live in and, where possible, their local environment. Developing knowledge, understanding and vocabulary are synonymous with each other. Therefore, we intend to build vocabulary to a point where children speak confidently and concisely using their specialist scientific vocabulary. By achieving these skills, our intention is that children understand the uses and implications of science for today and the future.
Another intention is to develop children’s understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of enquiries in order to become curious scientists today and to provide them with skills to access opportunities in future. Where possible, we will link scientific developments to our topics and explore their uses and implications.
