SMG Science Statement of Intent
At SMG, we see science as a way of children developing a sense of enquiry and extending their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. A huge emphasis is placed on scientific enquiry and children using investigations to add to their knowledge of how the world is constructed. Children are fascinated by the world around them and Science is a medium through which their understanding can be developed in a meaningful way. In addition to this we encourage children to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an
understanding of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.
All children are encouraged to develop and use a range of skills including observations, planning
and investigations, as well as being encouraged to question the world around them and become independent learners in exploring possible answers for their scientific based questions.
