The intention of the Science curriculum is to recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. It is an introduction to the world of living things, materials and physical processes. Science is a largely practical subject where children learn how to ask questions and develop ways of finding answers by encouraging a positive and natural curiosity through practical enquiry. Children gain knowledge about our world using skills of observation, pattern seeking, classifying, prediction, fair testing and research. Pupils are inspired to respect and nurture the world around them, and open their eyes to a world beyond their immediate surroundings and into the future.
Children follow the 2014 National Curriculum for Science which sees them undertake a broad and balanced programme of study that incorporates scientific knowledge and practical enquiry through the progression of topics.
