Science

Aims

 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.

 

We follow the National Curriculum guidelines using a topic approach, providing a broad, relevant science curriculum for all the children. We teach the children a balance between knowledge and investigational skills. Active engagement in learning is encouraged and children often work co-operatively, communicating scientific ideas to each other.

 

Basic scientific concepts are developed with the aim of helping children understand their world and encouraging them to develop a sense of responsibility towards it.

Pupils are encouraged to combine interest and curiosity with a responsible attitude towards health and safety, as well as respect for living things and the physical environment.

Scientific ideas are applied to real life problems including those that require aspects of design and technology to solve them.

 

Enrichment events such as special visitors during Science Week enhance the children's understanding and enjoyment.
