At Oxley our vision is to offer children a science curriculum that ignites their curiosity and enables them to confidently explore and discover the world around them, fostering a thirst for knowledge and developing a deeper understanding of the world in which we live. We strive to enhance our children’s natural curiosity and provide a stimulating science curriculum that equips the children with the scientific concepts, knowledge, and vocabulary required to understand the impact of Science, today and for their future. Through a hands-on, inquiry-based curriculum, our aim is to provide stimulating and challenging experiences that help children secure and extend both their scientific understanding and vocabulary.
At Oxley, every Science lesson should be an opportunity for children to develop their knowledge and skills through engaging child-led learning which enables them to both learn and apply transferable skills across other areas of the curriculum. Science teaching at Oxley follows the National Curriculum outline for progression and the ‘Switched On Science’ scheme of work provides the basis for planning. We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, lifelong learners who use their science skills to constantly explore and understand the ever changing world around them.
