The science curriculum at Hunningley Primary Academy provides children with a coherent, substantive knowledge of the scientific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics that provides pupils with:
-a secure, deep understanding of the nature, processes and principles of science through clear instruction and deliberate practice.
-an ability to apply long-term knowledge to make predictions and connections between disciplines, and recognise the uses and implications of science in the wider world.
-Gradual understanding of ‘vertical concepts in biology, chemistry and physics’.
It also intents to embed core disciplinary knowledge, and the ability to systematically approach challenging, scientifically-valid questions through:
-Scientific Attitudes & Planning
asking scientifically relevant scientific questions and designing controlled investigations.
-Measuring & Observing
learning how to use scientific apparatus like rulers and thermometers, and making systematic observations.
-Recording & Presenting
setting up data collection tables and presenting this data in a variety of charts and graphs.
-Analysing & Evaluating
interpreting and analysing findings; drawing conclusions and evaluating the reliability of investigations.
Our aim is to generate excitement for science, that inspires a curiosity about natural phenomena and the world around them.
