At Lion Academy Trust our approach to science is highly child-centred. For us it’s not just about delivering the facts and experiments required by the National Curriculum. We always push beyond that.
Crucially, our sequential curriculum is designed to encourage children both to understand how they are making progress and to build up their confidence. The goal is to get them to work independently and cooperatively with each other so that they can articulate, present and discuss their learning confidently. That’s when they get really inspired by the wonders of the world and motivated to take science further.
