It is our intention in science to develop in all young people a lifelong curiosity and interest in the sciences. When planning for the science curriculum, we intend for children to have the opportunity, wherever possible, to learn through systematic investigations. This will lead to them being equipped for life so that they can ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them. At Oaksey Primary School, we plan the curriculum so that children build on their skills in working scientifically as well as on their scientific knowledge as they progress throughout our school. We ensure that they develop greater independence in planning, carrying out and evaluating comparative investigations to answer a range of scientific questions. Our long term plan ensures that children have a varied, progressive, well-mapped out science curriculum that provides the opportunity for progression across the full breadth of the science curriculum from EYFS to KS2.
