Science & DT
Science is all around us! At SPSM we want our children to have a love for learning. We believe that Science should develop curiosity and perseverance as well as challenging what we know about the world. We aim to link Science to real life contexts and give meaning to our learning.
Our Science curriculum is:
Relevant and Engaging - real life opportunities for learning are included in all year groups. Children learn through investigations and experiments which spark their interest.
Active for Learning - we encourage children to think as scientists and make their own observations and conclusions.
Link making - by making Science relevant, children make links between their scientific knowledge and everyday life. We ensure that current affairs and scientific thinking is woven into our teaching.
Vocabulary Rich - we encourage use of high-level scientific vocabulary when talking and writing about our world.
Challenging - all children are challenged through questioning and content.
Ambitious for All - we aim to spark and develop curiosity about natural phenomena in all children and allow the to develop their own interests.
Cross-Curricular - we recognise the link between Science and all other subjects. Our lessons include a variety of extended writing, data analysis and other cross-curricular links.
