At Brookwood, we aim to provide an irresistible curriculum which will instil a lifelong love of science in our pupils. Our curriculum fosters a healthy curiosity in children about natural phenomena and develops a respect for both living and non-living things. Through this, they learn how science can be used to explain what is happening around them and make their own predictions.
We use the Developing Experts Science Scheme of work, which follows the science ‘Programme of Study’ outlined in the National Curriculum to plan lessons which allow opportunities for problem solving and encourage pupils to investigate their own questions. Children participate in weekly science lessons, which are well thought out and planned to demonstrate progressions and allow them to design and carry out experiments and investigations.
Children will leave Brookwood with a wide range of skills linked to scientific knowledge and enquiry; vocabulary to enable them to enable them to articulate their understanding of taught concepts and the aspirations which will enable them to higher education, work and life skills.
