Science Curriculum Statement of Intent

At Boreham Primary School it is our aim to develop children’s interest and curiosity about the world around them through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. We encourage children to be inquisitive throughout their time at school and beyond. This fosters in them a respect for the environment and provides opportunities to experience the awe and wonder of the natural world around us. Throughout the programme of study, the children will acquire and develop the key knowledge that has been identified within each unit and across each year group, as well as the application of scientific skills.  The working scientifically skills are built on and developed throughout children’s time at school so that they can apply their knowledge of science when using equipment, conducting experiments, explaining concepts and continuing to ask questions and be curious about their surroundings.

Aims and Impact

The Science curriculum at Boreham Primary School aims to:

  • Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
  • Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • Equip children with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

The impact of this being that the children leave Boreham Primary School as confident scientists who are interested and curious about the world around them.
