At Dorney School it is our intention to constantly enhance the Science Curriculum, which aims to develop scientific knowledge and skills alongside an enquiring mind as pupils learn how Science influences everyday life and our world.
Our Science enquiry encourages children to ask important questions about how things work and why things happen in a certain way. Ultimately, we believe this will help all children to understand the world they are growing up in and provide them with life skills to better access it as well as becoming creative thinkers and adults who strive to seek solutions to problems and answers to life’s questions.
Alongside scientific knowledge and the understanding of concepts, our children will develop curiosity and excitement about the natural world as well as use their skills to understand how Science can be used today and in the future.
All teachers ensure that pupils are exposed to high-quality teaching and learning experiences, which also allows children to explore their outdoor environment and engage with practical experiments. We immerse our children in scientific vocabulary, which aids children’s knowledge and understanding not only of the topic they are studying, but of the world around them. We intend to provide all children with a broad and balance science curriculum.
All children are provided with rich learning experiences that aim to:
Our curriculum has been mapped to ensure that there is clear progression across the school. Subject leaders regularly review the topics taught in each year group to ensure that pupils are taught the right content at the right time.
