Intent, Design, Implementation, Impact 2019

Intent

As scientists we are inspired to endeavour to be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of modern day science.  Our curriculum gives us the tools to explore the changing world around us through scientific enquiry.

Design

Our curriculum is based on the three areas of science, biology, chemistry and physics. We are encourage to ask questions and find answers through a creative science curriculum which is heavily developed on scientific enquiry.

Implementation

Long term: We use the National Curriculum for Science

Medium term: Science topics taught for each year group to build on previous learning.  We bridge back each lesson to ensure retention of knowledge to the long term memory.  This is achieved through a carefully planned curriculum which is underpinned by ‘spaced learning.’

Short term: Scientific enquiry led lessons which engage children.

Impact:   To enable children to leave primary school at ARE so they are ready to access the secondary curriculum.
