Our aim is that all pupils are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. Children will be encouraged to work and think scientifically, developing experimental and investigative skills and using scientific vocabulary to express their findings and theories.
Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about events and things in the world around them. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge. Because science links direct practical experience with ideas, it can engage learners at many levels. Scientific enquiry is about developing and evaluating explanations through experimental evidence and modelling.
Teaching and learning in science reflects our belief that children have a natural sense of awe and wonder in the world around them. We aim to support the children to develop a secure science knowledge base, and encourage them to ask questions, make predictions to further develop their scientific enquiry skills.
Science is an exciting and relevant part of our creative curriculum which enables children to learn about, observe and explore the world in which they live. The Science teaching in school actively encourages children to work both independently and with others in practical ways, developing secure subject knowledge, investigative skills and scientific vocabulary.
