At Wickersley Partnership Trust (primary) we aim to ensure our Science curriculum is designed to sequence learning and embed the key skills that are required to develop curious students into competent designers, engineers, architects and chefs.
We believe that our Science curriculum prepares children for the rapidly changing world that we live in, empowering the children in all areas of the subject so that they may aspire to a science based career choice Our Science curriculum encourages pupils to look at the world around them, and begin to find answers to questions. Through practical enquiry and class work, we look to provide all pupils with a solid understanding of basic scientific principles, which will enthuse them to want to study Science further.
We cover all 3 aspects of Science; Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
It is vital that curriculum knowledge and skills are not learnt in isolation. We teach Science through the progression of skills and knowledge, both of which are planned in a sequential document and include in this, key lines of inquiry to develop links across the curriculum as well as to the bigger concepts that drive our curriculum intent, such as democracy and equality.
