Limpsfield C.E. Infant School



At Limpsfield School, the intent is for our children to view themselves as scientists. We want to give every child a broad and balanced Science curriculum which enables them to confidently explore and discover what is around them, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. We want our children to love science. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be astronauts, forensic scientists, toxicologists or microbiologists. We want our children to remember their science lessons in our school, to cherish these memories and embrace the scientific opportunities they are presented with! 


Our science themes here at Limpsfield enables children to develop their skills, in line with the national curriculum and planning is carefully planned to enable recap and consolidation of each key skill. Every year group will build upon the learning from prior year groups therefore developing depth of understanding and progression of skills. Children explore, question, predict, plan, carry out investigations and observations as well as conclude their findings, we use our designated STEM room for experiments and explorations with equipment the children can learn to use independently.


The impact of this curriculum design will lead to outstanding progress over time, across key stages, relative to a child’s individual starting point and their progression of skills. Children will therefore be expected to leave Limpsfield reaching at least age related expectations for Science.  We want to empower our children so they understand they have the capability to change the world. This is evidenced in a range of ways, including pupil voice, their work and their overwhelming enjoyment for science.
