Science teaches an understanding of natural phenomena. It aims to stimulate a child’s curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do. It teaches methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought. Children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way in which science will affect the future on a personal, national, and global level.
The objectives of teaching science are to enable children to:
- ask and answer scientific questions;
- plan and carry out scientific investigations, using equipment (including computers) correctly;
- know and understand the life processes of living things;
- know and understand the physical processes of materials, electricity, light, sound, and natural forces;
- know about the nature of the solar system, including the earth;
evaluate evidence, and present their conclusions clearly and accurately.
Children are encouraged to use everyday objects and experiences to question and experiment in order to increase their understanding of their world.
The Science Curriculum focuses progress and attainment in:
- Working scientifically
- Physics, Biology, Chemistry
Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. Through exploring the world of Science, children are taught to develop their investigative skills by planning investigative skills and obtaining, presenting, and evaluating evidence.
We follow the DfE guidelines to ensure the continuity of provision through out the school. We place great value in developing investigative skills to foster a real understanding of scientific enquiry.
