Science

 

“The important thing is to never stop questioning.” - Albert Einstein 

At Harris Primary Academy Peckham Park (HPAPP), we believe that the teaching of science develops in children an interest and curiosity about the world they live in. It creates an interest about now, in the past and into the future, as well as giving them opportunities to develop learning skills for life. As stated in the National Curriculum, “a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.” Our Science curriculum will encourage curiosity in our pupils through the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes.  Our Science curriculum aims to foster a love and wonder for the world around us, increase pupil’s scientific capital, develop critical, scientific thinking and develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science. 

 

  1. Foster a love and wonder for the world

    Pupils will be encouraged to explore and question the world around them through discussion, investigation and questioning. 
     
  2. Increase pupil’s scientific capital 

    Pupils will be exposed to key scientific questions and the fundamental foundations of science alongside the significant scientific figures responsible. 

     
  3. Develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science 

    Pupils will develop their understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through a repetitive curriculum that builds on the foundations laid down in prior learning. Each half-termly topic will be mirrored across each Key Stage to support the embedding of prior knowledge as well as the securing of the new. 

    Supporting this, science units and individual lessons will be guided by an enquiry question. The enquiry questions serve to focus the study of a specific topic and provide a lens through which to filter the vast amounts of possible content that could be taught. The enquiry question for the unit, weaves the sequence of lessons together, promoting pupils to identify links between them. We want our pupils to acquire and utilise in-depth knowledge as opposed to a broad range of isolated facts.  
  4. Become critical, scientific thinkers 

    We deliver a Science curriculum that encourages pupils to think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and interpretations, and develop perspective and judgement.
