Our science curriculum aims to create and nurture a sense of awe and wonder about the world around us. Stanford Junior School also aims to use the power of education to advance environmental literacy and social engagement to contribute to a more equitable and sustainable future. New ideas and concepts are explored through first-hand, practical experiences which encourage the children to ask questions and articulate their thoughts with reasoned explanations. Through investigation and experimentation, children develop key scientific skills such as making predictions, planning their own investigations, recording observations, presenting and analysing data and evaluating their results.

Our curriculum explores umbrella terms such as 'animals, including humans', 'living things and their habitats' and 'plants' as well as 'forces', 'light', 'sound', 'Earth and space' and 'electricity'. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are interwoven into the curriculum so that children are able to link current world issues. We want the children to feel empowered to make a change in the world.

Topics are revisited across the key stage in order to build on prior knowledge and ensure progression. Wherever possible, links are made across other curriculum areas to deepen their conceptual understanding.
