Science

At Dee Point, the Science curriculum will be the means of providing all children with opportunities for developing a passion for science, developing a sense of excitement and curiosity about the world and exploring a range of exciting topics. At Dee Point, we encourage our children to explore and be inquisitive about the world around them. Our curriculum fosters a curiosity about the universe and promotes respect for the living and non-living. Throughout the programmes of study, we will ensure that the Working Scientifically skills are built-on and developed throughout our children’s time at our school so that they can apply their knowledge of Science when using equipment, conducting experiments, building arguments and explaining concepts confidently and continue to ask questions and be curious about their surroundings.

At Dee Point Primary School, we aim:

  • To provide all pupils with equal access to a rich, broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum matched well to their ages, abilities, interests and needs.
  • To increase pupils’ knowledge, skills and understanding as they grow and develop a passion for Science to harness their natural excitement and curiosity.
  • The curriculum will be carefully planned, sequenced and structured to ensure that learning is continuous. It will build upon previous knowledge and will deepen conceptual awareness to ensure pupils are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science.
  • To engage the children’s interest and to encourage and motivate them to ask and answer questions, explain and analyse causes, make predictions and solve problems.
  • To be exciting and enable children to build upon a body of key knowledge and an understanding of key scientific concepts through different types of science enquiries.
  • To open their eyes to awe and wonder and cause them to marvel at the incredible and fantastic world in which they live, discovering why science matters in the world.

 

As a school, we follow the Collins Snap Science Scheme of work.
