Science

Children are naturally curious about the world in which they live. Through the science curriculum the school aims to give the children the opportunity to ask questions, to investigate, to formulate hypotheses, to design and carry out experiments and to make observations and record results.

Children start to explore aspects of Science in the early years, when they discover more about themselves and the world in which they live. The Science National Curriculum is then taught from Year 1 to Year 6, where pupils learn more about simple physical phenomena, properties of materials, animals and humans and how substances and materials relate to one another and can change in different conditions. Children follow a structured programme of learning, where these science topics are taught in an age- appropriate way, as they progress through school. The Science projects are also linked, wherever possible, to the current theme of the class to ensure that learning is meaningful and enjoyable.

Children explore scientific facts through testing, working towards designing their own experiments to get clear and accurate results. They investigate scientific questions, test and then analyse results.

Aims

We aim 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.

Enrichment in science
