At Villiers Primary School, our inclusive Science curriculum encourages all our children to have an inquisitive nature throughout

their time at Villiers and beyond. Our intention is for all children to develop a passion for Science and we encourage all children to fulfil

their potentials. We aim to prepare our pupils for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world. We intend learning

in science to be through systematic investigations of the physical, chemical and biological aspects of their lives that rely mainly on

first-hand experiences, leading to them being equipped to answer scientific questions about the world around them. It is our intention

that, through investigative science, pupils at Villiers Primary School will continue to deepen their respect for the natural world and

increase their care and appreciation of it.


We aim to:

  • Develop pupils’ enjoyment, discover hidden talents and new passions in science.  

  • Recognise, embed and build-on children’s prior learning. 

  • Use a planned range of investigations and practical activities to give pupils a greater. understanding of the concepts and knowledge of science and to become independent thinkers.  

  • Encourage children to be curious about science and our natural world. 

  • Develop pupils’ basic practical skills and their ability to make accurate and appropriate measurements. 

  • Introduce pupils to a wide range of scientific vocabulary and encourage them to use this in daily life. 

  • Extend the learning environment for our pupils via environmental areas and the locality. 

  • Develop pupils’ use of computing skills in their science studies.

  • Promote a ‘healthy lifestyle’ in our pupils. 

Children leave Villiers equipped with the scientific skills and knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. Our children have the necessary understanding of different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions and become independent learners. Our naturally curious children leave Villiers with confidence in working scientifically and are eager and ready to develop this in key stage 3.
