Science explains the world around us. Whilst it provides the opportunity to develop key scientific understanding across a range of topics, it is also develops key investigative skills. Science is taught regularly. The children benefit from sessions dedicated to the development of knowledge and understanding as well as the opportunity to regularly plan and carry out practical investigations.
We teach the children to be inquisitive and question. We teach them to observe and record their findings. Science can be found in every other curriculum area. Children are encouraged to use technology where possible, explore natural environments and present their work creatively.
Our ultimate goal is to encourage the children to become scientists!
We follow the National Curriculum
The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
- 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
- are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
