At Charlton Wood Primary Academy, our aim is to create a learning environment of enthusiasm and curiosity for the world around us. We want to develop a life-long love of science within our pupils.
Our science curriculum has been planned as a Trust and covers the curriculum from EYFS - Year 6 to ensure that pupils gain the knowledge, scientific vocabulary and understanding they need to explore, understand and begin to explain the world around them. It also ensures pupils are encouraged to develop their scientific curiosity and understanding of scientific skills through different enquiries such as fair and comparative tests, observation over time, pattern seeking, identifying and classifying findings, research and evaluation and studying ideas over time.
Through a range of varied and enriching experiences within science lessons, we aim to enable all children to satisfy their natural curiosity. We strive to develop rational reasoning and the confidence to make informed judgements as well as directing children to explore why science matters in the real world.
