Science – Intent:
At North Mead, we believe every child has the right to access their full potential. We strive to provide our children with a broad, relevant, and enriched science curriculum to raise aspirations and provide cultural capital. We believe that building children’s science capital is vital to help broaden both experiences and opportunities for our pupils. E.g., Children in year 3 visit the Think Tank Museum to develop their understanding of rocks, while Year 4 visit Woburn Safari to develop their understanding of Animals including Humans.
Our science intent forms part of our wider curriculum intent: We will provide all of our children with a broad, relevant and enriched curriculum so that they have the character to make a positive contribution to our society and are knowledgeable, skilled and ready for the next phase of their education.
At North Mead Primary Academy, we believe in the importance of science: nurturing curiosity and creativity. Through a combination of investigative skills and practical activities, children will develop an understanding of the world in which we live, the journey of science and its importance for the future.
Science is taught discretely following the National Curriculum.
