Science

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 pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.

 

Science is essential to our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

 

Aims:

Our aims in teaching Science are that all children will:

  • retain and develop their natural sense of curiosity about the world around them
  • develop a set of attitudes which will promote scientific ways of thinking, including perseverance, objectivity and a recognition of the importance of teamwork
  • come to understand the nature of “scientific method” involving: careful observation, the making and testing of predictions, the design of fair and controlled experiments, the drawing of meaningful conclusions through critical reasoning and the evaluation of evidence
  • become effective communicators of scientific ideas, facts and data
  • begin to build up a body of scientific knowledge and understanding which will serve as a foundation for future enquiry.
  • find science enjoyable and engaging
