Science Curriculum

 

In Science we encourage children to ask questions and consider ideas about the wonderful world that we live in. We aim for children to develop an understanding of the world around us and how things work.  By underpinning our curriculum with knowledge we ensure children can explore, question, investigate and make conclusions. Over time scientists have discovered, explored and created theories and we ensure children have opportunities to question and investigate these ideas. We encourage children to understand how science can be used to explain what is happening, predict how things will behave and analyse causes. Teachers use sound subject knowledge to ensure they can question, further learning and develop children’s investigative skills. As children progress they will use practical materials and skills to develop an awe to find more about the world around us.

 

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.
