Our Curriculum Intent for Science

Live: At Our Lady of Lourdes we value, respect and understand the importance and impact of the abundant connections in our world. We aim to inspire curiosity through nurturing the use of the key skills: observing, enquiring, investigating, recording and evaluating – both in Science and our everyday lives. 

Love: The Science curriculum is rooted in instilling a love of exploring, understanding and investigating the processes of the natural and physical world. We teach the children to take accountability for their choices by encouraging them to reflect on their impact on the environment and wider world. We make those choices by keeping “love one another, as I have loved you” at the forefront of our minds. 

Learn: We learn to be critical thinkers with a joy and enthusiasm for scientific knowledge and discovery. We learn through enquiry and investigation, the effects of Science historically and what impact this has on today and our future. We learn to use Science to improve and grow our world in positive and sustainable ways for all living and non-living being
