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 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
- are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
All topics and objectives are covered during lessons with a key focus on Working Scientifically. The National Curriculum provides the objectives and ‘bare bones’ of the subject, then children are given the opportunities to use these facts and apply new knowledge with a wide variety of enquiry based learning activities. Children are encouraged to explain, predict, ask questions and carry out research, whilst developing a sense of excitement and curiosity about all areas of Science.
We encourage the use of the outdoors as a means of delivering and enriching scientific enquiry throughout the school.
