At Broomhill Infant School, our intent is to deliver a high-quality and broad and balanced science curriculum which enables children to confidently explore, investigate and discover what is around them, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in and develop a respect for living organisms and the physical environment. We aim to promote positive attitudes to science as an interesting and enjoyable subject, and also to develop pupils` awareness of how science is relevant in our daily lives and how it plays a pivotal role in shaping the future.

The world we live in is constantly changing and pupils need to be equipped with the necessary skills to thrive and be successful in the future. We aim to instil a passion for science through investigative learning, allowing students to ask questions, explore problems and search for solutions using their creativity. We want them to have no limits to their ambitions and to grow up wanting to be anything from astronauts, forensic scientists, vets or marine biologists. To achieve this, we will include exciting, practical hands-on experiences that encourage curiosity and questioning. Our aim is that these stimulating and challenging experiences help every child secure and extend their scientific knowledge and vocabulary, as well as promoting a love and thirst for science.
