We believe that children are naturally curious and in science we aim to channel their curiosity about the world. Children are encouraged to find answers to their questions in a scientific manner.
They are taught to investigate, observe, and develop fair tests, record systematically and to make simple conclusions through practical activities and investigations.
The national curriculum for science aims for all pupils to: -
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
- develop an 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
- be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
