In our Science work, we aim to encourage all of our pupils to extend their awareness of the way in which their lives are influenced by Science and Technology. We also aim to develop a questioning attitude in the children and an ability to use and apply scientific knowledge and skills.
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 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.
