Science Intent at Castleton
At Castleton Primary School, we aim to deliver a high quality and inclusive Science curriculum, which provides solid foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. We promote and develop curiosity, exploration and explanation from a young age so that children can understand and reason why, and in turn see how science has contributed to - and changed - the world we live in.
We strive to make our learning hands-on and practical through memorable, enquiry-based investigations and make effective use of our school’s outdoor areas. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, children will develop the ability to express their thoughts, observations, explanations of what is happening, make predictions and analyse their findings.'
