Science Curriculum Intent

At West Ewell Primary School it is the intent of our science curriculum to encourage students to develop inquisitive minds and curiosity about science and the natural world. Through our carefully sequenced programme of study we give children regular opportunities to think analytically, critically and carry out scientific investigations. We aim for children to develop values of honesty and respect towards living and non-living organisms, the physical environment and when evaluating evidence. We make regular use of our local environment as well as our school grounds to give children first hand opportunities to broaden their scientific knowledge and skills. By the end of Year 6, children will be able to describe and discuss how science is applied and used to solve local and global problems.
