Science Intent

Here at Cambois Primary School we believe Science provides the foundations for understanding the world around us. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. We teach Science as part of STEM developments in school which allows us to support children in the world around them as well as preparing them for their next steps in the future, whether this being secondary school or future employment.  All pupils will be taught the essential aspects of knowledge through concepts, methods, processes and the uses of Science, through dual objective planning and the use of a formative approach to assessment. In our school we teach Science through concepts and as a result we build up memorable knowledge and vocabulary, supporting children with both their learning and long-term recall. Through teaching this way, we are allowing our pupils to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena and the world around them. They will be encouraged to understand how key knowledge and concepts can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes.
