At the Crossways Schools, we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. The provision at Crossways is designed to foster enquiring minds, and develop curiosity about the word in which we live. Through a broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum, we will ensure the progression of scientific understanding through both the acquisition of knowledge and vocabulary and the development of enquiry skills. Children will be able to use the knowledge they have gained to be confident to ask scientific questions to deepen their understanding and have the skills to investigate their ideas safety, using a range of scientific equipment. Ultimately, the children at Crossways will be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.
We endeavour to ensure that the Science curriculum we provide will give children the confidence and motivation to continue to further develop their skills and curiosity into the next stage of their education and life experiences.
The National Curriculum will provide a structure and skill development for the science curriculum being taught throughout the school, which is now linked, where possible to topics to provide a creative scheme of work, which reflects a balanced programme of study. In Early Years, Science is taught through the children learning about the world around them in their learning through play.
