At Shepherdswell we recognise the importance of science throughout daily life. Our Science Curriculum aims to embed the ‘Big Ideas’ of Science throughout teaching and learning, as well as enabling children to think and work scientifically.
We understand that high quality science teaching fosters curiosity and equips children with the skills to support them to answer scientific questions about the world around them and develop a wide vocabulary. While develop essential skills to deepen their scientific knowledge, to be able to record and report their scientific findings in systematic, scientific ways. We believe that hands on scientific experience enrich and deepen the understanding of our children. Given our school context we aim to provide children with new and exciting experiences to spark their curiosity and passion for science.
When children leave Shepherdswell we aim for them to be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and concepts of science.
