Curriculum Statement

Intent:

At Tillingbourne children will work scientifically; making careful observations over time, pattern seeking, classifying and sorting, researching and using secondary sources of information, and conducting investigations (fair testing). Children will record data and results of increasing complexity using scientific diagrams and labels, classification keys, tables, scatter graphs, bar and line graphs; making strong links with the Maths curriculum. Children will report and present findings from enquiries, including conclusions and causal relationships as well as identify scientific evidence that has been used to support or refute ideas or arguments. The body of knowledge as set out in the Science Curriculum is clearly established and all children develop and use the knowledge fluently.

Implementation:

Teachers, through their schemes of work and guided by the progression documents, ensure there are opportunities for varied investigative work. Children use the 5 enquiry types listed in the progression document to discover the world around them and explore the key concepts outlined in the knowledge statements within the national curriculum. Lessons are focused on the children’s ability to work scientifically with clear skills being explicitly taught and highlighted within the WALT. Core knowledge is revisited throughout the year to ensure more successful future learning and links to previous learning are made when embarking on new learning.

 

Impact:

Children perform well in their end of key stage assessments and the number of children reaching the expected standard by the end of KS2 is above national. Children have strong enquiry skills that they are able to apply to multiple disciplines and topics.  Children’s Maths scores increase in data handing skills due to its application in science lessons.
