At Little Sutton Church of England Primary School, we aim to provide our children with the knowledge and skills they need to become superb scientists. We offer a science curriculum that evokes excitement, curiosity and understanding about the world around them through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics whilst supporting the Fundamental British Values. Ensuring the progression of skills and cumulative learning, the curriculum also builds on the children’s metacognitive learning strategies through effective pedagogical and vocabulary rich teaching. Subject specific vocabulary is taught and built upon as topics are revisited to ensure conceptual understanding in order to be used accurately and precisely.
We know that children learn through enquiry-based learning, thus science at Little Sutton has been structured to ensure that our pupils have first-hand science experiences from the beginning of their learning journey. This allows for independent exploration and investigation that then leads to progression of communication. Our progressive, creative curriculum will enable our children to thrive as educated citizens of the future and through a growth mind-set approach and know that their learning has no limits. Our children understand that ‘for with God, nothing is impossible’.
