Our Science subject leader is Mrs Felicity Cook.

At Baddow Hall Infant School our vision is for every child to make the best possible progress.

Intent for our Science curriculum:

At Baddow Hall Infant School we aim to provide relevant opportunities and first hand experiences to develop children into lifelong learners, who are curious, resilient, observant and creative. Children are taught to observe carefully, question, measure, predict, investigate and draw conclusions in a scientific way.

EYFS framework: Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world. The frequency and range of children’s personal experiences increases their knowledge and sense of the world around them.

National curriculum guidance: A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
