At Mendip Green Primary School our science curriculum is rooted in exploration, enquiry and investigation, fostering a healthy curiosity of our universe and stimulating creative thought. Exploring everyday phenomena, will provide children with the foundations for understanding the world around them and an appreciation for the awe and wonder that science holds. They will understand the fundamental importance of science: how science has changed our lives and our world, and how it is essential to our future prosperity.
The choices we have made within our science curriculum will allow children to explore everyday phenomena so that they lay the foundations for understanding the world around them and an appreciation for the fascination that science holds.
Children will know science (biology, chemistry and physics) both as a discipline to be studied and as a field of knowledge that can shape their outlook now and in the future. In addition, they will understand the role of scientists (biologists, chemists and physicists), appreciating their contributions, knowing that they could, should they wish to, have a career in this area in the future. They will recognise and appreciate how science will affect the future on a personal, national and global level.
We follow the National Curriculum and have sequenced the subject content meticulously to best suit the needs of our children and to compliment effective learning strategies. Alongside this, we have developed a progression of skills to support teaching and learning.
