WELCOME TO OUR SCIENCE PAGE!

Intent:

Science provides the foundation for understanding the world around us. Engaging children’s natural curiosity, imagination and
excitement; science enables children to explore, learn and make sense of the world they live in. Our creative science curriculum
will enable children to gain positive attitudes towards scientific knowledge and investigative processes; to understand both the
uses and implications of science today, and in the future.

A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all children should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They will be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

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
