Science at Great Meols
Our intent is to enable pupils to:
• be curious about things they observe, exploring the world about them with all their senses;
• develop understanding of key scientific ideas and make links between different experiences;
• begin to think about models to try to make sense of things they cannot directly experience.
• acquire and refine practical skills so as to investigate questions safely;
• develop skills of predicting, asking questions, making inferences, concluding and evaluating based on available evidence;
• practise and use mathematical skills and be aware of their use as an aid to understanding.
• use scientific and mathematical language including technical vocabulary and conventions;
• use diagrams and charts to communicate scientific ideas;
• read non-fiction and extract relevant information to support their understanding;
• use sustained and systematic writing of different kinds to present ideas.
• work with others, listening to their ideas and treating these with respect;
• develop a respect for the environment, living things and for their own and each other’s health and safety;
• gain insight into the complexity, diversity and wonder of the universe.
Our curriculum design is based upon the units created in the Kent scheme of work.
