Science

Intent

Science at Westfield school enables and encourages children to question, explore and discover the world around them, through practical, hands-on, skills based enquiry. Our curriculum ensures that children progress their scientific skills and understanding, vocabulary use and ability to work scientifically year on year. We teach children how to hypothesise, observe, accurately record and draw conclusions when completing experiments and scientific enquiries across all key stages.

Teachers give children the opportunity to apply their maths, English and computing skills within science lessons as we aim to make strong links to learning across the curriculum.

We aim for all children to be inquisitive and eager to learn more about the world they live in and become confident, scientifically competent, active citizens in an increasingly scientific and technological world.
