Curriculum Intent for Science:


Through Science at Wavertree C of E School, we aim to give all our children some understanding of the world around them and teach them essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. 

 All children are encouraged to develop and use a range of skills including planning investigations, predicting how things will behave, observing, analysing results and rationally explaining the results. 


We strive to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about the world and a love of Science, where questioning is encouraged. 

Speaking and listening is highly valued throughout Science lessons, as this not only encourages children to explore scientific vocabulary but also share and develop ideas with others.  


The children study topics relating to the four main themes:

  1. Working Scientifically
  2. Life processes and Living things
  3. Materials and their properties
  4. Physical processes

Each topic is revisited at different levels as the children progress through the school
