Science Statement on Intent
At Willow Primary Academy, our science curriculum is designed to develop a sense of excitement, curiosity and fascination about natural phenomena that will remain with the children for the rest of their lives. We want children to gain an understanding of scientific processes and an awareness of the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. From Reception to Year 6, our pupils will build a foundation of key knowledge and concepts, as well as develop skills in scientific enquiry and questioning. We actively encourage children to be inquisitive and develop their natural curiosity, whilst increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of our world. The aim is for scientific enquiry to form a common thread through the curriculum, helping children to understand that science is just as much about what they do as about what they know. We aim to maximise the opportunities for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more about science.
