Science

The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

Science Programme of Study
 

Our aim in Science is to foster a curiosity about the world we live in and to encourage an enthusiasm and love of the subject. Our Science lessons aim to engage the children and stimulate their learning through investigative work and scientific knowledge. Children are encouraged to  predict how things might behave; collect and present findings; apply  scientific knowledge and arrive at conclusions to explain what is occurring. Throughout this process, every child is encouraged to question, appreciate and relate to the universe to which they are a part of.

 

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.
