At Temple Grove Academy, our primary school Science curriculum is designed with a clear intent to cultivate curiosity, critical thinking, and a love for scientific exploration. Our aim is to provide a dynamic and engaging learning environment where students can develop a deep understanding of scientific concepts, apply scientific methods, and appreciate the relevance of science in their everyday lives. We believe that a robust science education fosters inquiry, problem-solving skills, and prepares students for an ever-evolving world.

Key Intentions:

  1. Curiosity and Inquiry: Nurture curiosity and a sense of inquiry by providing opportunities for hands-on scientific exploration.
  2. Scientific Literacy: Develop scientific literacy by building a strong foundation in key scientific concepts and principles.
  3. Critical Thinking: Foster critical thinking skills through scientific investigations, experiments, and problem-solving activities.
  4. Real-World Relevance: Emphasize the relevance of science in students’ daily lives, connecting classroom learning to real-world applications.


To achieve our Science curriculum goals, we have chosen to collaborate with Kapow, a platform that aligns with our teaching philosophy and provides comprehensive resources and tools for delivering dynamic and engaging Science lessons. Kapow supports our educators in creating an interactive and immersive Science curriculum.

Key Implementations:

  1. Extensive Resource Library: Utilize Kapow’s extensive library of Science resources, including lesson plans, experiment ideas, and multimedia content, to enhance the variety and depth of Science lessons.
  2. Interactive Lessons: Incorporate Kapow’s interactive features, such as virtual experiments, simulations, and collaborative activities, to make Science lessons engaging and relevant.
  3. Progress Tracking: Use Kapow’s tools to track students’ progress in scientific skills, ensuring targeted interventions and personalized support.
  4. Cross-Curricular Integration: Explore cross-curricular opportunities by integrating Science with other subjects, fostering connections between scientific knowledge and broader learning experiences.


We anticipate a positive impact on our students’ scientific knowledge, critical thinking abilities, and enthusiasm for scientific inquiry. The impact of our Science curriculum, supported by Kapow, will be measured through students’ scientific achievements, problem-solving skills, and their ability to apply scientific principles in various contexts.

Key Areas of Impact:

  1. Scientific Knowledge: Assess improvements in students’ understanding and application of key scientific concepts.
  2. Critical Thinking Skills: Observe enhancements in students’ ability to analyze information, draw conclusions, and solve problems through scientific inquiry.
  3. Inquiry and Exploration: Measure students’ enthusiasm for scientific exploration and their ability to conduct independent inquiries.

By integrating Kapow into our Science curriculum, we aim to provide a stimulating and impactful science education that instils a lifelong love for inquiry, critical thinking, and an appreciation for the wonders of the natural world.
