Our Aims at Sacred Heart
- To give all children a strong understanding of the world around them
- To acquire specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically
- To gain an understanding of scientific processes and an understanding of the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
How do we deliver our curriculum?
Throughout Sacred Heart, we aim to deliver a Science curriculum that is embedded through ‘science in the world around them’. We promote a continuous process of thinking and working, where the children will have the opportunity to discover, explore and investigate a variety of topical issues.
We put a lot of emphasis on the children being taught practical investigation skills that support teaching of key scientific concepts. This also allows students to practice cross-curricular Maths and Writing skills. As part of this planning and teaching process, we ensure that Science skills are explicitly taught once a week during Science lessons. We use the Mastery Flow Model for each objective to ensure that all children can deepen, stretch and master their new learning.
