Subject Lead - Miss Wood
Hello, my name is Miss Wood, Science has always interested me; from observing to experimenting.
Questioning how things happen and evolve are a real passion of mine and a passion I intend to engage our children in.
We live in a world surrounded by science from the light bulb we turn on in the evening to the invention of computers and the Internet, I still remember the first computer arriving at my school when I was 11 years old, today I have a smartphone!
The history of science and the figures that brought us to the world we live in today is amazing I am inspired by the men and woman of Science such at Katherine Johnson a NASA employee who was critical to the success of the first and subsequent U.S. crewed space flights, she helped calculate the trajectory for the 1969 Apollo 11 flight to the moon.
I strongly believe there is a thirst for science and understanding of the world we live in embedded in all of us.
Curriculum Intent - This is what we want the children to learn.
At Holy Trinity all our pupils will develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry, and physics.
We understand that it is important for lessons to have a skills-based focus, therefore our science curriculum fosters a healthy inquisitive nature in pupils ensuring that the Working Scientifically skills are built-on and developed throughout. We enable our pupils’ scientific vocabulary, and different types of science enquiry to flourish; whilst encouraging all to use their voice to challenge in a positive and respectful manner, confidently demonstrating their curiosity whilst applying their knowledge of science.
We engage our pupils in an understanding of science for all, ensuring a diverse representation of the science community. Our pupils will leave us at the end of year 6, shining like beacons, equipped and ready with the scientific skills required to understand the uses and implications of science in our community, today and for the future.
Curriculum Implementation - This is how we will do it.
Curriculum Impact - This is how we measure it.
