Science Vision

As a STEM school science is a key part of the teaching at Evendons and is interwoven through the curriculum on a day-to-day basis. We recognise that in an increasingly scientific and technological age children need to acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes to better prepare them for modern life.

Young children are naturally curious and passionate about learning. At Evendons we provide a stimulating science curriculum that nurtures children’s natural curiosity and their on-going intellectual development. Through a hands-on, enquiry-based curriculum, children will experience the joy of having wonderful ideas, exploration and investigation.

Real-life experiences are a fundamental part of our approach and members of the community are regularly invited in to share their experience and expertise. This is demonstrated through our popular and interactive STEM day, which we host every year, inviting different schools and expertise from our local area.

At Evendons, there is a whole school ethos of understanding and caring for the world around us and an understanding of our responsibility towards both the immediate and wider environment and community. This underpins the philosophy of the school and permeates everyday teaching and learning

Science Intent

  • Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through hands-on and real life experiences.
  • Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
  • Be equipped with the scientific skills required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. We understand that it is important for lessons to have a skills-based focus, and that the knowledge can be taught through this.
