Townville Infants' School

Welcome

Intent Statement

At Townville Infants and Nursery School, we aspire to offer the best possible early education for all our children in a happy, safe, inclusive environment.

 

Throughout our science curriculum we aim to ensure our children:

  • Understand that science is a part of every-day life and the study of living things.
  • Are equipped with the knowledge, skills and understanding, which encourage children to be keen, inquisitive scientists now and in the future.
  • Become competent scientists with “hands on” investigations and experiments: finding out from first-hand experience and testing hypotheses, in line with “working scientifically”
  • Ask scientific questions and develop their curiosity of the world around them
  • Develop scientific vocabulary and be able to use it to describe ideas, objects and explain concepts confidently.
  • Promote opportunities for exploratory talk in order to develop ideas, arguments and deepen understanding.
  • Understand that key skills they learn in science can be applied in other areas of the curriculum.

​​​​​​​

This build upon the children’s prior knowledge gained through the foundation stage for Science where children:

  • Begin to ask and answer questions about the world around them
  • Develop an understanding of their basic needs and the importance of healthy food choices
  • Explore the natural world and make observations
  • Draw upon their experiences and what has been read to them , begin to identify similarities and differences in relation to the natural world around them and contrasting habitats
  • Understand some important processes and changes in the natural world around them, including the seasons and changing states of matter
