Vision statement and intent:
At Skelmanthorpe Academy we provide a rich science curriculum stimulates and excites children as well as developing the necessary skill to be a scientist. In EYFS, this is fostered through the development of their knowledge and understanding of the world, across the setting, indoors and out. At Key Stage 1 and 2 children observe, explore and ask questions about living things, materials and physical phenomena. They work together to collect and evaluate evidence and to consider whether tests or comparisons are fair. They use reference materials to find out more about scientific ideas They learn to share their findings in a variety of different ways.
