Intent for Science:
The intent for our Science curriculum at Charville Academy is to produce independent learners who are able to recall learning about scientific processes, enquiry, knowledge and a diverse range of scientists throughout their time in school and in preparation for the next phase of education. We encourage our children to be creative and curious to develop a lifelong love of learning. Specialist vocabulary for topics is taught and built upon, and effective questioning to communicate ideas is encouraged. Science is taught through and related to everyday ideas and concepts which will result in them becoming thoughtful and reflective citizens with an understanding of the world around them. It will develop the natural curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence.
