Science Curriculum Intention
At Milford-on-Sea Primary School, our Science curriculum enables children to be curious learners . It balances skills with scientific knowledge and provides opportunities for children to explore the world around them.
The aims of the Science curriculum are to develop scientific knowledge and understanding of processes, whether this is biological, chemical or physical processes. Children will develop their vocabulary through each learning experience. They work as scientists by learning how to work scientifically in various ways such as carrying out observations, investigations and experiments. This allows children to ask and answer questions, analyse, explain and share their findings.
MOSPS also understands that our learners are growing up in a world that is rapidly changing due to Science and technology breakthroughs. We ensure that children have an understanding of significant discoveries and their implications, as well as how Science is used outside of school. Our curriculum is relevant to our pupils’ lives and the world around them and our curriculum is enriched by learning opportunities at Forest School and Beach School.
