Science Vision Statement
At Linton Mead we provide a stimulating science curriculum that nurtures children’s natural curiosity and their on-going intellectual development. Our vision is to give children a Science curriculum which enables them to explore and discover the world around them, confidently, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world they live in. We provide them with opportunities to pursue their natural curiosity; promote the experience of exploration and investigation when considering scientific phenomena, in a range of contexts, to ensure continually evolving knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our children will be actively encouraged to ask questions, take risks, experiment, reflect on learning and make and learn from mistakes, in a safe environment. At Linton Mead Science is taught with a cross curricular and creative approach, interlinked with aspects of Maths, English and other foundation subjects. Children are encouraged to use the skills they have learned to lead on, plan and carry out experiments independently. We ensure the children are confident in relating to the science in their everyday lives and are proficient in collecting and using empirical evidence, rationalising- thinking logically, self-questioning and thinking critically, while following the five scientific lines of enquiry. We adopt the mind-set that it is healthy that children are allowed to make mistakes and learn from every investigation whether it goes to plan or not. We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life-long learners and equipped with the core skills and knowledge they will need in an ever-changing world.
